If it's the rheumatologist you're referring to on the east side, then yes. I think overall he is a really good doctor, actually one of the better ones. He aggressively tried to get to the bottom of why I was so not getting better and thought of lyme immediately but since I tested negative he moved on to other things. I would not hesitate to recommend him but not for Lyme. There are much better choices in NYC.
After doing considerable research, I chose Dr. R. and can't recommend him highly enough.
