TICK-BORNE ILLNESS CENTER OF EXCELLENCE P: 715-203-1616 W: www.tickcenter.org 240 Maple Street, Woodruff, WI 54568
The Tick-Borne Illness Center of Excellence has come to the rescue. To receive specialty care for tickborne illnesses has required significant travel. Now we have a center specializing in tick-borne illnesses right in the heart of the Midwest. Located in the beautiful Northwoods of Wisconsin, the Center opened its doors to chronically ill patients on the waiting list last September and is now ready to accept new patients. Under the purview of world-renowned Dr. Samuel Shor, a 30+ year Provider of care to tickborne illness patients and past President of ILADS, the Center has four primary objectives.
The Center is a place: 1. Where people who believe they may have a tick-borne illness can be effectively diagnosed and treated. 2. Where patients who have been suffering for some time from an undiagnosed illness can receive a clear plan for treatment and follow-up care. 3. Where patients can participate in research to improve the ability to diagnose and treat tickborne illnesses. 4. That connects with other clinicians and researchers to share information and findings. A place where collaboration is the norm.
To remain focused on tick-borne illnesses, the Center is blessed with an Advisory Board consisting of Dr. Shor, Dr. Brian Fallon from Columbia University and Dr. Andreas Kogelnik, all well-respected and recognized crusaders in the battle against tick-borne illnesses.
If you’re not getting the help you need to return to health, don’t hesitate. Contact the Tick-Borne Illness Center of Excellence to have your best chance of succeeding.

Hi, This is Mike from the WI. Lyme Yahoo group. I haven't posted here in years but wanted to post about the new lyme clinic in Woodruff, WI. First of all, I still see some familiar names here so long time no see.
WI. has made many strides over the years in fighting tick-borne illness and the lyme clinic is the culmination of that.
The Waite family and others were instrumental in getting this off the ground. The lyme clinic is located at Howard Young Medical Center in Woodruff, WI. It's attached to a 90 bed hospital.
Past ILADS president Dr. Shor teleconferences in with all patients as our NP is on site to administer his treatment orders. Right now, the office has several hundred patients but is expanding it's patient load and will bring in new ILADS trained providers as patient load warrants.
This is an exciting venture, one that could be a huge boon to the lyme community as this may be the only lyme clinic I know of attached to a hospital.
We have patients from multiple states so all are welcome. Feel free to call the ph. no for additional information. Please spread this information widely to all your contacts and groups. Hope you're all doing well and getting the help you need.
My son Jesse became very ill in 2004, wheelchair bound, missed 2 1/2 years of high school. Today, to look at him you would never know he was sick a day in his life. There's hope for all ! -Mike

Thank you, Mike, for sharing this wonderful news with all of us. It is about time something like this came to fruition!
Do they take insurance? What about people who have no insurance? So glad to hear your dear son is doing well - it truly is a miracle. Thank God for his healing!!!

They do not take insurance at this time but that is definitely being discussed. They're also working on a foundation for indigent patients.
If I recall the first visit is about $400-$450, around there, but it's very thorough with Dr. Shor. Subsequent visits were about $250 I think.
Thank you for the kind regards on my son. His big issue was babesia, once that was addressed, everything else fell in line.
