I made an appointment on Tuesday the 2nd with Dr. S. They accept my insurance. They use a lab called "MDL" labs (http://www.mdlab.com/html/home.html) any info on this type of lab? I guess if my ins. doesn't cover, depending on how much it costs we might go with it if this is a good lyme lab. Otherwise we might have to use a lab that is covered under our insurance. I'm not overly worried, because I even had a positive elisa, and my western blot had one band present, but since I did not have 5 bands they did not diagnose me, even though I had the rash (and I still have a picture of it, which is in my other post).
Has anybody else seen Dr. S.? What is your experience with him? What was your wait time in the waiting room? (I have a toddler so that can get itchy), Did he for you make a clinical diagnosis? What are his forms of treatment? (iv, injections, oral, etc), How long did you have lyme before you saw him - was it chronic? How was Dr. S.'s bedside manner?
I ask because my exposure was almost 6 years ago. It's about
an hour drive from my house which is a blessing on top of getting covered by my insurance. Thanks to all who reply!!
Please do not post full names of Dr.s.
