Hi there,
Since I joined facebook, I am coming across some really sick people. I am now trying to find a Lyme Specialist in and near Chicago, Illinois for another lymie who is really sick.   Any suggestions? She did see a few and is on a waiting list for another.  I do NOT care if the doctor is on the ILADS list as more and more doctors are treating this.   Please, , can you email me at robinox@comcast.net with the information if you have a recommendation? Even if she has to travel a state or two away from Chicago!
Thank you!
Robin O.

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?

Hi Gary, Thank you!
Please send me what you have! That would be great!! What I meant is the doctors did not have to be ILADS but of course they can be!!!
 
This poor girl has been to three doctors, two of which were ILADS and did not have much success.  Hopefully you will have different names the the ones she has tried. I don't know who she sees, I live in Pennsylvania.
 
Thank you again!!

Hi Stutterbug!
Yes, please forward me what you have!! robinox@comcast.net.  If you can too, please tell me a little bit about this doctor.  The problem with this girl is she has been to two ILADS doctors and it did not work out.  She wants to be treated more aggressively. She is also on a waiting list for another.
 
Thank you thank you thank you!

Robin, You can also try sending an e-mail to stephanie@turnthecorner.org requesting a list of llmd's in your area. Just be sure to include the zip code. Good luck.
