Hi,

I'm looking for a doctor who can order a PICC Line for IV treatment for Lyme Disease. I live in the Reading, PA area. I do NOT want to have this done at Reading Hospital. I'm looking at either Lancaster General Hospital (Lancaster) or Brandywine Hospital (Coatesville). I need a doctor that has privileges at either hospital.
Can anyone recommend a doctor who can help me?

Thanks,
Robin

You need to contact the SE PA lyme people, who have been in the support biz for a long time now.

Just sharing my experience, I am not a doctor.

Check the online state Lyme groups at:

Maybe they can help you.

We got around that by the IV Therapy company making the order for the PICC line install.

Our LLMD did not have rights to practice at the hospital we used and there was no issue.
