What a great visit! We spent 3 hours in the office and probably 2 with the doc. He seemed very compassionate and caring! He went over all of our other doctors' reports and pointed to things that points to Lyme. He and his staff were great!

He does feel it is lyme and we opted to do the Western Blot, Infectious Disease Panel and the ammino accid/fatty acid blood tests. He was never pushy and listed for us several other tests we could do as money permitted.

He started my wife on Doxycycline, Ceftin, Flagyl, and Nystatin.

Thanks to everyone here for the recommendation!!
I hope we get to tell our tales of getting better together!

It's great to hear the appt went so well.

Keep in touch & let us know how both of you are doing - the patient & the caregiver.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks for taking time to give us an update.

That's great! One thing I always know. Dr C will not disappoint. You may not get well as quickly as you'd like, but he tries his darndest...and you're right, he's not pushy! [and he's compassionate, and caring, and...]

Keep us posted. And be sure to read those handouts over and over. You'll learn something new every time.

Slow and steady wins the race! [Smile]

Glad you had a good visit and a good result.

Lymetoo.....you are right, the handouts are amazing. I think I've read them 5-6 times already, and I learn something new every time.

Does anyone have Dr. C's website? I used to have it but can't find it. Didn't he used to practice with Dr. M? Are their treatment styles the same? Any info is appreciated.

Yes, many years ago. From what a patient of Dr M's told me, the two are very different in their treatment and treatment styles.

I have thought about trying to get in to see
Dr C. He sounds like a wonderful doctor. The only question I have is that does he want you to purchase supplemnts from him? I did see that he sells lots of supplements.

NO, absolutely not. In fact, I've been his patient for 5 yrs and have never purchased a single supplement from him. I did buy Iodoral from him once, but now buy it online.

He never pushed any supplements onto us either. I'm reading his handouts to see if we want to try any.

Well thats great news!! I think he is the only lyme doctor any where near me. I think he is still an 8 hour drive for me. Well that's exciting.
Thanks,
Kathy
