Hey dogs and cats! Nice to see you!
At www.MarylandLyme.org in the "Doctor Referral" section (see menu on the left) you will find lists (by state) of Lyme friendly health care professionals, along with their contact information.
Not sure what kind(s) of professionals you are looking for, but the state pages have listings for MD’s, PA’s, pediatricians, naturopaths, holistic doctors, chiropractors, chiropractic neurologists, speciality labs, alternative care providers, alternative dentists, acupuncturists and those treating mold exposures, Morgellon's/Lyme and MTHFR and more.
Some who treat children will be listed as such, however, some not specifically listed as treating children MAY also take children. He would need to call those near him and ask what ages they can see if under 18 years old.
As for insurance, you need to contact the offices directly to get their updated information.
Additional Lyme info is listed by topic (lab list, alternative professionals, ALS/Lyme, treatment guidelines, ticks and diseases, NOT recommended, etc.) if the person you are assisting were to need it.
Hope that helps! It will at least give him a start!

I will send you a private message of LLMD's close by to Palmdale.
Most LLMD's don't take insurance. But I think most of the lab work can be summited to Med-Cal. for reimbursement.
Good luck to your friend.
