Just read the response
"sad, another one bites the dust".

I believe Steve can no longer practice because his back problems won't allow him to sit in a chair any more.

I think the comment a bit useless for those of us whos sanity sits on a thread and his help has given us a rope.

I will find another doc I am sure . I believe he knows some and I will be talking to his office.

One is lost, others arise, its becoming to loud to hide.

Everyone I communicate with and I make a point to spread the word, has been effected by Lyme in some way.

Just saw a news article on Fox where a bunch of people in Japan are dieing from tick bites.

Are you looking in Connecticut , if so keep in touch and you can email me any time , Got some ideas.

Wow, that's got to be really scarey for those of depending on this LLMD.

I hope all of his patients find someone else to help them through tx.

Hi,

Also a patient of Dr P and would like to hear about any suggestions. Preferably in CT, but I live near the NY border in Fairfield County and could go over the state line easily. Thanks all

Hi folks,
I am not going to let this conversation sputter out but its the Holiday .

This week I am going to put the old bean to work. I will post any information I find.

I know there are LLMDs in Ct.

Again, I am going to leave a message with Joanne his secretary for some names and get my abx filled.

Hopefully Dr. P will stretch it out on the meds.

He told me on my first visit , I quote " if my fee is a hardship for you there is a Doctor in ______ who takes insurance".

I cannot remember Stamford , Stratford but he does have information .

If this letter came a year ago I would be depressed beyond wanting to keep going.

I have my life back now to a degree of acceptance.

I am a changed man with a broader outlook on people I never even looked at before my illness returned.

I apologize for the length of this, keep tuned in

Joe

There is a relatively new MD in Glastonbury who is supposedly pretty good. He is Dr. M.

I can say that I've been to Dr. K in Orange and Dr. S in Bridgeport but would not recommend them for anything but straightforward cases (if there is such a thing).

We can't afford to lose another lyme literate doctor.

Good luck gang.

I just received my letter as well. Unbelievable. Have been seeing him since 2001. He changed my life - it actually feels more like he saved my life... I hope he will be able to get back at some point.
