Hi Mark G
Welcome to lymenet

You can request LLMD's from Global Lyme Alliance

https://globallymealliance.org/contact-us

In the message box, state you are requesting LLMD in your area. They are quick to reply.

You can also request LLMD's through ILADS

http://ilads.org/ilads_media/physician-referral/

Also join your area's Lyme support group. You MUST research each Doctor. Treatment protocols vary greatly. Support groups will allow you to be able to compare other Lyme patients experiences with these doctors. It is so important to get the very best doctor to get you well.

Good luck. Keep us posted on your progress.

Hi, Mark. Welcome to LymeNet. As Bonnie said above, the ILADS organization has a doctor referral service. However, ILADS knows nothing about these doctors.

They just send you names of those nearest to your location who have submitted their names for the doctor referral service.

So, don't think that these are good doctors or doctors who know a lot about lyme, etc. They are NOT.

You have to research each doctor to find out how much he knows and if he really knows how to treat a lyme patient.

Another organization that gives out doctor's names is the Calif Lyme Disease Assn, now called LDA. Here is their site for doctor names:

https://www.lymediseaseassociation.org/doctors

Sorry, I don't know the docs in your area. Hopefully, those who do will come along shortly.

Get LOTS of info on a doc before laying out the big bucks. Current patient reports and recommendations are perhaps the best source of info if the patient is very knowledgeable about lyme.

If you have not yet read and studied the Burrascano Lyme Treatment Guidelines, they are here:

http://www.lymenet.org/BurrGuide200810.pdf

This document will give you your education on this disease and tells you what good lyme treatment looks like.

We will help you here all we can!
