My LLMD retired and I’ve been looking for a new one. I had an appointment with one and we did NOT hit it off. She was angry and insulting. I KNOW it’s difficult to find one but if I have to see someone like that then I just won’t go, and I really do need one. She may know her stuff but I need someone I can talk to and ask questions of. I’ve had three LLMDs in the past 20 years…died, retired, retired…and I’ve been able to ask questions and explain things to each one of them. I’m telling you this so you don’t think I’m being too picky.

Also, I would like someone who looks at all types of treatments and not just the ones that are not covered by insurance. I know, picky right?! Thanks for your help.

Very sorry to hear about losing another LLMD. There are so few of them. Not many in Michigan unfortunately.

I will send you a pm for Michigan and Illinois.

Also request LLMD’s from the organizations listed below. They are simple e-mail formats that you fill out and send and they will reply with LLMD’s in your area.

ILADS
https://www.ilads.org/patient-care/provider-search/

Global Lyme Alliance
https://www.globallymealliance.org/lyme-patient-support/find-medical-professional/

You must research each LLMD. To do this, google for patients reviews or join your area’s Lyme support group.

With all due respect, you might have to compromise on your wants, especially since LLMDs are far and few between. I'm not saying you should just settle for anyone, because you still need to get proper treatment. Get personal references instead of just a name.

PM sent for IN and OH. I don't know of any good ones in MI.

Contact the MI Lyme Support Groups - they would know better about MI.

Btw - please break up your posts into 2-3 sentence paragraphs, as there are people on Lymenet who cannot read large blocks of text due to neurological problems from Lyme.

To do this click the pencil/paper tab, make your changes, then click "Edit Post". Thanks.
