In the past 2 days I finally learned the name of the NEUROLOGIST who has been seeing my poor mother, and making treatment recommendations to "her" psychiatrist. (The guy who actually dishes out the "dope" for her "anxiety!")

One website reported that of 11 patient reviews, this guy garnered a rating of 2.5/4.
(NOT great!!)

Among the patient comments was THIS GEM from a couple of years ago ....

I hesitate to give Dr. ***** even one star as he was down right abusive towards me and I could never recommend him to anyone. I saw Dr. ***** following a diagnosis by another doctor of chronic lymes disease, and to find out the reason for chronic headaches and joint pain after treatment for lymes failed. Dr. ***** was impatient, terse, sarcastic, and basically hateful. He was filled with anger against lawyers for some reason, and verbally berated me for thinking I had lymes disease. He kept insisting "there's no such thing as chronic lymes disease."

I tried to tell him that's why I was there to find out a reason for my symptoms, but couldn't get him to listen. He was on a rant against lawyers and then, without any medical tests told me "I don't think there is anything wrong with you; I think your symptoms are all in your head but I'm going to order tests for liability reasons--just for liability reasons."

I wish I had had the strength to tell him where he could put those tests, but I was raised in a medical family where you don't question the doctor. I later learned from several other medical experts that they thought Dr. ***** has a "brilliant" mind, but no bedside manner and is "basically a nutcase". I was urged to find another neurologist, and I did.

This was NOT the only disparaging assessment of this "practitioner" - but the only one that specifically mentioned Lyme.

So this is who my IDIOT BROTHER has selected to treat our mother, who tested POSITIVE for Bb by spinal tap 3 years ago!!!

Kinda sounds like he might have been facing a lawsuit of some kind - don't cha think?

LORD, My Mommy surely needs YOUR help!!!

(I didn't sleep ONE WINK last night! Just running on Spit and Vinegar today!!)

It might be helpful to let your local lyme support groups know about your experience so others can have a heads-up to find a better doctor.

I was thinking that later today Keebler.

We'd want to warn "South Shore/Cape Cod" Lyme patients who need a neuro, to stay far away from this IDSA proselyte!

However, given that it might jeopardize my ability to help my Mom in some, as yet unknown way, I am reticent.

I WOULD be HAPPY to respond to any and all inquiries as to this guy's identity by PM!

Local Cape Cod vicinity Lyme Groups/activists, please TAKE NOTE!

You're right, Aunty. I would not provide a link on this public board.

Protect yourself!

Are you going to send this info to your brother?

Opinions, not medical advice!

Neurologists are more often than not unhelpful.

Some can learn.
