To the newbies -

LymeNet Users,

The LymeNet Terms & Conditions contain the following:

You also agree not to post the last name, or the first name, of any person that treats Lyme disease.

Instead, please use the first initial of the last name only, with the state. For example, Dr. B. in NY.

This person's contact information should not be displayed on LymeNet.

However, you may email this information. This is to protect those that treat Lyme and the Lyme community.


There is alot of political turmiol around lyme and its treatment....

They are trying to take away the medical license of dr.s who treat alot of lyme...

especially long term treatment for chronic lyme...

So to keep our precious llmds safe please either send a private message to the person or an email.

Best wishes [Smile]

It's actually against Lymenet rules to post ANY dr's name, permission or no.

Thanks for the heads up, Azure! [Smile]

A little reinforcement.

The following is part of a recent email exchange I had with Pat Smith, President of LDA:

"Lou, at the moment I know of a half dozen or more of docs under scrutiny. A few of the docs have websites and go out there, but most don't. The major websites do not post names. I do not use names when I speak about docs, we do not use them on materials in testimony and try to train patients not to use them.

I used to think people were a bit out there when they said websites were monitored. We know from certain legal cases that indeed, that has happened. People speak about treatment on the net. Not good to have someone say Dr XXXX gave me 1G XXXX drug 2x day. I actually have become more conservative as I have seen documents and heard political chatter all over and I think we keep docs and specifics of treatment as off the net as possible."

Got the message? [tsk]

I also strongly suggest you not posts the specifics of your treatment protocol or the detailed discussion / dialog that took place between you and your doctor during your office visit.

Current HIPPA laws prohibit the doctor from discussing your care with anyone but you without your written permission. I suggest you respect the doctor - patient relationship by discussing any issues or concerns directly with the doctor and not posting them on an Internet BB.

Thanks and take care,

Is it OK to use the LLMD's full names in private messages?

[confused] I don't wish to appear lame but why are doctors being persecuted for fulfilling a serious medical need (patients with Lyme disease)?

I really don't understand this.

It seems like we are losing the Lyme fight if we can't provide names of LLMD doctors to patients searching for them. I know these actions have kept me from finding doctors. Four years and I am still searching.

Are we allowed to at least post the names of the doctors who don't believe in Chronic-Lyme. This will at least help patients by informing which doctors to avoid.

A whole lot of names being used lately as opposed to initials.


Joe,
Doctors' names and contact information can be exchanged privately by PM or email. I'm sorry it's so difficult to find someone willing to treat. I understand. I hope you have found, or can find, some help soon.

I am in Kentucky. I have been to the Mayo for the symptoms we all are aware of. I was told my body could not process steroids and I had suffered damage. This after I had explained I had come for lyme treatment. Needless to say, I am looking for help here or close by in Tenn. or Indiana. Please point me in the right direction.

I AGREE whole-heartedly - this is in a word - SAD. We just need some help not rules and regs - this is a disease - last I checked - this isn;t some wierd fettish site - this is a discussion on how to get help witha disease. I've been less frustrated at the registry of motor vehicles.
