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.

An excellent site to learn more - for anyone in any state:

California - Lyme Disease Association (CALDA) is a non-profit corporation acting as the central voice for all tick-borne disease issues.

When you get a doctor's name, be sure to check about their being what we call ILADS-educated or ILADS-minded. Talk to your local support groups, call the doctor's office and talk with the office manager about the doctor's affiliations and experience so that you might find a "good fit" for your particular case.
