Hi everyone! I am currently seeking a doctor in Central Florida (but preferably in the Orlando area) that is lyme literate.

I went to the Center for Natural and Integrative Medicine here in Orlando but was not too happy with the doctors there (they wouldn't even call me back when I called about extreme medication side effects).

Would love it if anybody could direct me to a doctor that takes insurance!

Welcome to Lymenet! Sent you some info.

Most Lyme-literate doctors do not take insurance due to the politics surrounding this horrible disease and its complex treatment.

There was one in Tampa, but he retired. They are far and few between, unfortunately!

Check the online state Lyme groups at:
http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/floridalyme

Maybe they can help you.

Some more resources for you (including Support Groups):
www.lyme-aware.org/florida.html

The top LLMD, Dr. H, has written a new book entitled, "Why Can't I Get Better?". It is an excellent source of information.

Also read "Cure Unknown" by Pamela Weintraub. Check your local library or buy it used on Amazon.

Hi OK,
was just about to post a similar question and saw yours. We live in Gainesville and are considering the clinic that you mentioned.

Would like to hear more about your experience, if you are willing to share. If so, please private message me--I noticed you're not a member yet, so not sure if you can do that without registering, but would really appreciate hearing your feedback and whether there was anything that did seem worthwhile.

thank you!

I live in the Orlando area. We travel out of state for care, and pay out of pocket. Gotta love FL. LOL

levity,

since OK is now unregistered, they will not be able to private message you.

We're checking on why "OK" is shown as unregistered.

Hi,

I'd like the Central Florida list also for our 11-year-old ASD-and-lyme-afflicted son. He did 3+ years of oral ABX with Dr. J in Ct. with very little progress. We then did several months of treatment with the parasite doctor in St. Louis with no progress. Finally, we found Dr. C in Tampa in the fall and tried some more oral ABX. We had another appointment with him next week, but now we learn that he retired and the new guy replacing him won't see children. Great. Just when we were going to try IV ABX with Dr. C. Now what? We would try Dr. K at the CINM, but I have read mixed messages about him.
