I'm desperately looking for a Lyme-friendly PCP in Massachusetts. My current PCP is a Lyme-denier, and not helping at all.

Need a PCP who is Lyme friendly.

I know it's like searching for a purple polkadotted unicorn, but I need one nonetheless. If you know of one, please let me know! Thanks!!!!

I found my last LLMD with these search engines. It was a Godsend when I found him. He was an LLMD and had had lyme. So did his wife.

/www.lymediseaseassociation.org/ -- Go to Dr. Referral tab

In case you are looking for a lyme herbalist buhnerhealinglyme.com/resources/herbalists/

Good luck and let me know how the search goes. I feel for you. I did not want to spend a lot of time looking. I wanted action.

Hopefully someone can email you a good name.

Lyme friendly PCPs are so hard to find. Mine is not a denier, and is deferential to my LLMD, and for that alone I am grateful. My Mom's PCP, in another part of the state, is also supportive.

I see an LLMD in Northampton, who used to run a family practice, but now focuses on integrative medicine, and particularly chronic infections.

Happy to share any of these names with you if you think they would be helpful. Feel free to PM me.

gfields,


There is a great place here in MA, but I don't believe they take any insurance (maybe top tier stuff). I just kept my PCP for standard stuff and am paying for visits outta pocket. They will charge your insurance for as much as possible, ie: standard blood tests and such.
It is still totally worth it to be involved with a team that is as up to date on chronic lyme as is possible.
And this center diagnosed me after 2.3 years of suffering with no diagnosis.

PM and I'll shoot you the name along with another name a member here had sent me too.

It is important that we keep seeing our PCP/GP's for our non-lyme 'stuff'...and having one that is supportive of the lyme diagnosis is great.
I'm also fortunate to have that.


The NP at Dr. J's clinic - actually had a discussion with me on getting some 'regular' testing/procedures done...not to keep putting them on the back-burner. (mammograms, a colonoscopy...etc)
