In the 1980's, I camped thru-out the USA. Since then, chronic issues come and go but aren't resolved-IBS, MCS, CFS, tendonitis, etc.

Recently I got a positive Igenex ImmunoBlot IgG: 23+, 28+, 31+, 41++, plus 3 indeterminate cofactors.

I'd like to find a clinic around Portland, OR if possible. I really want an expert with successful experience, even if I need to travel to WA or beyond. Thanks.

BartenderBonnie's links are good.

There are no LLMDs in Oregon - the Oregon Medical Board is harshly against the idea of "chronic lyme" & even untreated or undertreated or ineffectively addressed lyme. They often punish doctors who treat, important to know.

They also want to ignore other tick-borne infections.

Be careful when in typical doctors' offices about mentioning lyme - it's sad to say but there is the risk of being written off as a loon and then discounted. There may be a few "safe" places but just be careful until you know more about their stance.

However, there are several excellent LL NDs in Oregon, and in Portland, too. ND are naturopathic doctors. NDs can prescribe Rx in Oregon. A few NDs are covered by some insurance, too, though for a restricted set of things. And an ND can also be one's PCP.

As the Oregon Lyme Disease Network (link above) for recommendations of ILADS-trained LL NDs &/or lyme "friendly" MDs who might fly under the radar to help in more subtle ways.

I hope you can connect with both the state group and a local group, too.

Good luck.
