btw, I am in the KC area and Dr R seems to be considered a real lyme expert here. When I called, they said she was filled up, and then later, after learning she doesn't take ins, I gave her up.
I read all the earlier posts about her on this board. What some people were paying her was quite alarming. Now, seeing this, I'm really disappointed. Drs like this are responsible for the disrespect paid to people who are ill and DRs who treat Lyme.
And I am asking the same question as others: HOW did these folks learn, positively, that they did NOT have Lyme. First of all, we are told how difficult it is to diagnose w/ labwork. Also, that once you have Lyme, there is never a way to learn, proof positive, that the spirochetes are completely gone, even after treatment w/ Abx.
If THEY (ER rooms, other Drs, etc) can prove that we don't have Lyme, IF we don't have Lyme, then why can't they help all of us who are struggling with this? I think we'd sure like to have Lyme ruled out, if we don't, in fact, have Lyme!
This article and the one posted about the phoney lab earlier are very discouraging. They sure didn't help matters, only made it worse and more difficult on everyone's suffering. Sure makes it difficult to know who to believe, huh?
