Well, I would be glad to send you links to websites that will provide you with ILADS approved LLMD's if you'd like. I do think it makes a difference if they are on the ILADS list otherwise you're going to get a doctor who will possibly under treat or maybe doesn't believe in chronic lyme disease. I know of one LLMD in MO who isn't a member of ILADS but he pretty much treats according to the guidelines, but not as aggressively as most LLMD's because he doesn't like to see his patients go through difficult herxes. He believes it unnecessary, which I agree with. Anyway, if you're interested in getting ILADS LLMD referrals I can send you the links, otherwise I probably can't help you. Is your friend open to natural medicine from a LLND?
