Hi All,
I am looking for a few names of great doctors in the Boston or north of Boston area. I have a lot of people asking me for lyme literate doctors. I have my specialist Dr. D in Boston, but am looking for a few others if possible to put on my list to give out to those who come to me for help.
Anyone have personal experience of know of any good lyme docs in this are would be helpful.

There is an excellent new doctor at the Marino Center in Wellesley, MA. She trained under Dr. Horowtiz and already has people flying from all over the world to see her. She has only been there 3 months. She has given permission to post her name; Katherine Lantsman.

Check out her profiled from linked in

Wish I was a yankee sometimes. So many more doctors who treat Lyme Disease. But then LD was first discovered there I suppose, so there's more documented cases.

It's everywhere. I wish everyone would wake up to that fact.

I just got the strangest call from Dr. Lantsman's office.  I was scheduled to see her Friday for a Lyme consult (to rule it out or diagnose it).  The call was to cancel the appt and the person who was calling said "she is no longer allowed to treat Lyme disease".  She even used the phrase "got caught", when I asked why she couldn't treat it anymore?  The person on the phone was flustered and cryptic - but it seems like something very strange just happened.  There are so few Drs who diagnose and treat Lyme - I really want to know why another one has been pushed out of the field.  What is going on???  Can anyone comment?

Watch the film "under your skin" and you will know "What's going on". It is all about money and the CDC.  I met with and spoke to that doctor at Horowitz's office she was very hopeful to treat patients---but I will bet she takes insurance and that explains it all. I hope you find someone else that can treat you most likely it will be someone who doesn't take insurance and it will cost you---but it will be worth it. Most of us have to pay for our treatment out of pocket. Blessings
