Thanks so much Frango, I know of someone that is wanting to make an appt there. I figured that it wasn't a good choice but thought I'd ask you all first. THANKS

Yes, DON"T waste your time with Mayo Clinic. They will NOT help at all with lyme. I went and it was a total waste of time. They said that I had "idiopathic immune dysfunction" whatever the heck that is???? They sent me home with some antidepressants. The most expensive bottle of zoloft ever!!

Mayo is a waste of $ and time. I've known of more people who went to Mayo with high hopes, only to be completely disappointed. Basically, their modus operendi is proving whether a patient's symptoms are psychological or not, and they tend to err on the side of psych vs. not psych. They do not believe anything except their own test results, and if what you have doesn't fit in a nice neat diagnostic box that they themselves have established, they automatically label you a psych case and send you home with antidepressants. I know far too many local doctors more than willing to give me antidepressants, so why spend all that $$ and time going to Mayo to get the same??? Just not worth it in my opinion...

Thank you all so much. I will pass this onto my friend that was considering it. How very sad that this is probably labeled as a psychological disease to many people that do not know anything about lyme.
