Has anyone been successfully treated for Lyme by Dr J in Rockville Maryland? Going nowhere, getting frustrated.
Any recommendations for good LLMDs in this general area?

Welcome to Lymenet! PM sent for DC.
I don't have any experience with Dr. J. You need to be evaluated and treated by a Lyme-literate doctor (LLMD). Non LLMDs have no clue about this horrible disease or its complex treatment! A LLMD is one who has treated Lyme disease and the co-infections which come with it for many years and has gotten patients well. A good one will follow Dr. B's Guidelines, the "gold standard" for Lyme treatment. Here is a link for them: http://www.lymenet.org/BurrGuide200810.pdf LLMDs are far and few between, unfortunately. You need to go where they are. The doctor is the key to the diagnosis and for getting rid of this horrendous disease. I can't emphasize that enough - the doctor is the key. Also, most LLMDs do not accept insurance due to the politics surrounding this horrible disease. Read poster TF's explanation, "Why Lyme Doctors Don't Take Insurance": http://flash.lymenet.org/scripts/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=2;t=025539;p=0 When calling for an appointment, ask if they have any cancellations or a waiting list. Patients have been able to get in sooner by doing this. Check the online state Lyme groups at: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/MarylandLyme/info Maybe they can help. They would know better about MD. Some more resources for you (including Support Groups info): http://whatislyme.com/lyme-in-maryland/ www.natcaplyme.org http://www.lymenet.org/SupportGroups/UnitedStates/Maryland/ Read the books written by the top LLMD, Dr. H, titled, "Why Can't I Get Better?" and "How Can I Get Better?". They are an excellent source of information. Also read "Cure Unknown" by Pamela Weintraub. View "Under Our Skin" and "Under Our Skin 2: Emergence" DVDs. Check your local library or buy them used online.
