Anyone here see him?  If so,  I really need his first name as his last name is common and I am unable to find which one he is by searching online (darn secretive Lyme stuff).   Also, if you went to him...did you like him?  Is your treatment helping you?   Does he take your insurance?

My wife and I went to him. If you click envelope icon under my name and send me an email I will give you his full name and details of our experience with him. I noticed you did not enable your email icon so there's no way for me to reply to you until you do that or post your email address here.

The reason we don't give names on the forums is because sometimes other doctors who don't agree with aggressive antibiotic treatments will sometimes report the doctors for this and they get in trouble for not following the IDSA guidelines for treatments. The IDSA doesn't believe in chronic lyme disease nor do they believe in long term antibiotic treatments. You can read more about this controversy at the two links I provided you below.

Send me an email and I'll answer your questions.

Gary, How do I enable my email?

Yes I know about the LYme contraversy that is why i didn't type in his full name.

Patti, I don't think its easy to find out who he is cause I have purposely tried to search for him cant find him.....and I know his last name and specialty. If the moderators think I should change the post then i will of course.

Maybe the moderator will tell you how to enable it. I don't have time to figure it out or I would be glad to explain it to you. For now, just go ahead and email me at dmw@brightok.net. I don't mind my email being posted here. If you email me I'll email you back and that way we can keep the doctor's name off the board.

He's a good doctor, however, he is relatively new in lyme practice. He and his wife had lyme disease and that's what got him interested in treating it, especially after seeing there was such a great need for more LLMD's. He treat's according to Dr. B's guidelines and, for the most part, is pretty knowledgeable about treating this disease. He lacks knowledge in some of the natural stuff such as toxin removal and stuff like that, but he does have a basic list of supplements he recommends. He treats aggressively with abx and will make adjustments according to your needs.

My wife relapsed after being treated by Dr. C in MO for less than two years. She then went to Dr W and got treated with abx for 8 months and fully recovered again. I was not helped by abx, but that was no fault of Dr. W. My body does not handle abx well, they literally tore up my stomach, plus I had bad reactions to many of them.

Some people can't handle abx well and have to use alternative treatments such as herbal treatments or homeopathic treatments such as what I'm on. I was recently on a two week treatment protocol at the Hansa Center by Dr. J and am doing amazingly well now. You can read more about this on my thread here: http://www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=30&m=1690780

Anyway, shoot me off an email and I will give you the contact information you need on Dr. W right away.

JYW, Yeah, I'm still improving. I will give an update soon on the Hansa Center thread and let you all know how things have been going since I left the Hansa Center. I'm amazed at the progress I've been making. Had a couple days that weren't so good but that's to be expected. So far now it's been about five weeks since I've been home and I'm real pleased with my progress. More to come later when I have some extra time...

Hey Gary.....someone from another forum had already sent me the info before I got back here. Thanks for your help. Guess I will have to start saving money for all of this.

Junkyardwilly....do you mind posting your docs website? maybe one day things will change and all docs will do that. I have seen other doctors online who are very forthcoming in their views on Lyme and testing.

First I'm gonna talk to my local doc about testing me and treating me.. Hey it doesn't hurt to ask right? If they wont..then yeah I'm gonna pursue seeing an LLMD. Thanks again for the info :)

Please do not post doctors names and their websites on the forum. You can do this privately through email.

Thanks.
