I would recommend Dr. J in a heartbeat. I live in Raleigh, and I've been seeing him for almost 2 years now. Once you get started with him, he is not expensive at all (in relative terms, of course). I see him 2 times per year, at $240 each visit. The initial 2 visits are more expensive because he spends a good deal of time with you.
Trust me, he is worth the expense. I have improved tremendously...and I don't take antibiotics every day. He usually puts his patients on a pulsed dosing schedule. Right now I take antibiotics for only 3 days a month, and I feel great! When I started with him, I took antibiotics for 3 days a week for 3 weeks every month (with one week off every month). He follows your progression and begins to slowly decrease the frequency of antibiotics. If you need additional info, feel free to shoot me an email.
