Who are the available, and most up-to-speed physicians in the area of Lyme disease in the Portland, Oregon area?
My daughter has been suffering with chronic pain for months now, it is so sad. What is even worse is our medical insurance, Kaiser, has failed us regarding what appears to be Lyme. They won't test for it and barely even recognize this condition. So strange how something like this is so polarizing and political, all the while the patient suffers.
I am looking for MDs or Naturopaths in my area that can test/treat this chronic condition. I am open to any suggestions as I just want the best for my kid. Note: We are covered by many out-of-network naturopaths by our insurance. There are over 30, I just don't know which ones are good and lyme literate that are in the CHP Group. If ANYONE has some information pertinent, PLEASE share!! Thank you so much

Hi,Life360, welcome!

Sorry your daughter is suffering.

I do have a list of LL Dr.'s in Oregon...although I don't have any personal experience with any of them.

You can email me and I will send them to you.


We do have members from Oregon on here..hopefully one of them will see this thread and respond as well.

I went to one in Corvallis. I can send you the name if needed. I had Kaiser too, and ended up paying out of pocket to get testing done through my naturopath.

Hello Girlie,

Thank you for your willingness to provide your list of LL Dr's in Oregon. I am helping a friend locate resources here in Portland, OR. Sent you an email a short while ago to request the list.

With Gratitude,

Mark

Im in Portland, Or. And have seen several Dr's since 2009.

The one I see now, THE BEST, is an ND in Tualatin= its a 'restorative' focused clinic. They use traditional chinese herbs, homeopathic, AND traditional American pharma!

Im using secret language here as we're not supposed to promote any Doctor or clinic. Key words are Tualatin and restorative-LOL!!!

I would like to add to my list.
