I recently moved from the midwest to Oregon and am wondering if there are any top notch LLMDs on the west coast...anywhere from CA to WA. Any help would be appreciated. I currently see a LLMD in DC, but am wondering if there would be someone great closer to me.

You likely already know that Oregon has zero LLMDs (not allowed by the medical board). I hope you enjoy Oregon but, sadly, this is one the most lyme-hostile states regarding medical care.

However, there are several LL NDs (naturopathic doctors) who are ILADS educated and are licensed in Oregon to prescibe a wide range of Rx.

It's good that you ask for CA and WA - there are several.

Next post will have links for you. There are a few very good support groups in Oregon.

Lyme Disease in Oregon

The Kaiser Papers - not by or from Kaiser Insurance but about how they deal with lyme inquiries

Also gives background regarding lack of lyme assessment / treatment in general, regardless of one's insurance coverage. Important points to know as you make your way with any aspect of medical care in this state.

OREGON SUPPORT GROUPS listed at BOTTOM OF PAGE. They can shine some light on choices.

There are zero LLMDs in Oregon. Yet, there are several ILADS-educated LL NDs (naturopathic doctors) in Oregon.

There are both some LLMDs & LL NDs in California & also both in Washington state.

PM sent with a couple LL ND names in Portland. Not sure what part of the state you are in, however, as one of them also has taught seminars for other NDs who want to learn about lyme, they would probably know of others in the state.
