I am being treated by a great LLMD in CA. But I live in AZ, and state law requires that an in-state physician sign off on the nursing order for my IVIg. I am seeking an LLMD or DO in Tucson or Phoenix who might be willing to work with my CA Dr (Who is well known in the ILADs community) to provide in-state support. There is very little Lyme awareness in the genera medical community here so the usual difficulties apply, and my IVIg's are being covered by my insurance so I can't risk seeing someone who might raise red flags. An LL neurologist would be ideal! Thank you for any suggestions. P.S. Burgess is NOT my name, so please don't feel the need to warn me against using it, Thanks!

PM sent for AZ.

I don't know of any LL Neurologists in AZ. There is one I am aware of, but he is in CT.

Call the LLMD's office to ask if she would work with your LLMD and what exactly needs to be done in order for that to happen.

Check the online state Lyme groups at:
https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/ArizonaLyme/info

Maybe they can help.

Some more resources for you (including Support Groups info):

Btw - please break up your posts into 2-3 sentence paragraphs, as there are people on Lymenet who cannot read large blocks of text due to neurological problems from Lyme.

To do this,click on the pencil/paper icon, make your changes, then click "Edit Post". Thanks.
