I am looking for a recommendation for a doctor in the New York City/Westchester area.
On a related topic, I found Dr. P in CT who seems to be highly recommended but see he is no longer accepting new patients. I understand new patients can see his nurse practioner. Has anyone been a patient of this nurse practioner?
Thanks so much.
(editing out doctor name and city per Lymenet rules)

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.
*NOTE: Poster "Rumigirl" added this good info in another post about NYC:
"Since you are in the NYC area, besides all of the great information that has been posted, I strongly suggest coming to the NYC Lyme Support Group. It meets the 4th Monday of each month [URL=http://www.nyclymesupport.org/ ]NYC Lyme Support Group[/URL]
The group is very educated and can help you figure out who to see that is best for your circumstance."
