Any doctor who is willing can have the Bowen QRIBb test done. That would verify what that nasty tick did to you. Maybe he wasn't infected!

The QRIBb is done here in FL, but our LLMD in PA is the one that uses it on us.

Any doctor. Just find one! Sounds so simple.

I wish you well.

I'm in Victoria and got infected here.

No LLMD I could find but I just got back from Seattle today and Dr.R was extremely helpful and informative.

My meds were WAY cheaper from than they are in Canada. I paid $111.00 for 105 Doxy tabs at Pharmasave and today I got 240 more from Walgreen's which was only $48.00 US when I signed up for member ship ($20). 360 Amoxicillin tabs was also only $47.99. My savings in meds almost paid for the hour with the Doctor.

Canada has 1 LLMD and he's in Toronto. I'm not kidding.

Have you gone to the Canlyme forum to check in with other BC Lymies? There are lots of them. www.canlyme.com

Hi Liz,
Now that Dr. Murakami retired, I don't think there are any LLMD's in BC.

This was confirmed 2 weeks ago, when in Dr. J's office, I talking with a family who had driven in an RV from Vancouver Island across the country to New Haven, Conn. so that their daughter could see Dr.J.

Of course, coming down to Seattle is not that bad :-)

I actually moved from Vancouver Island back to the States for treatment because I couldn't find a nearby LLMD. Sorry I couldn't be more help!
