It is fairly normal for LLMD's to not accept insurance.
What I would not put up with is no breakdown of what was charged for what.
Also, I won't go to a doctor that insists I use their products only. I don't have an endless supply of money (it's actually quite a tight budget!!), so I need to shop around to find what I need. If they can't understand that, then they can't understand (or help) me.
I would encourage you to look around for better options, but don't go to an ID doc - they rarely understand these infections, believing it's hard to catch and easy to treat. The only exceptions I've seen to this have been those ID docs that have stepped out and now follow ILADS treatment protocols.
It's not likely that your regular doc will be of much help either - but it may be worth a talk with them to see what they would do for you. Some docs are willing to still follow ILADS treatment protocols, but many are not.
