- Good point. Even if a "list" or a few names of LLMD are shared from here - one should do follow up to be sure those names ARE of real LLMDs. Since this lists are compiled from suggestions - sometimes, other names get on to referral lists, with non-LLMDs or a MD who is only marginally lyme literate. And the lists are not necessarily a complete listing. By checking with local support groups - or in the area around where the doctor on the list works - one can get better first hand feedback. It's always good to check with many sources. - [ 07-16-2010, 01:06 PM: Message edited by: Keebler ]
