I've just started my protocol after coming back from the clinic, so I can't comment yet on whether it's worth it.
FYI - It's not always Dr. J that patients see...he has several NP/ PA's who take on patients.
When I made my initial consult I was told that he doesn't do initial consults but you can see him after that first appt.
The NP I saw for my consult - she was very knowledgeable...and my appt. was from 12:15 to almost 4:30.
But, I do want to see Dr. J. and unfortunately I didn't get my follow -up for April booked with him...they booked me with a PA. I called to switch, but he is booked for that time frame.
Yes, he has a good track record. He has been practicing/treating lyme for many years. Prior to lyme, he treated HIV/Aids patients...and actually developed a protocol where they weren't taking their meds on a daily basis...and now uses that with his lyme patients.
BTW - he is also an Infectious Disease Dr.
No, the appts aren't monthly. They are usually about
3-4 months out.
My follow up is 9 weeks after my initial consult...but I expect the next ones to be 3-4 months apart.
For people traveling far (I'm in Canada) - the clinic allows phone follow-ups for some appointments.
My next one is a phone appt.
He does not focus on mold and metals. I'm not sure if/when he looks at that...they didn't ask me anything about
You can email me for the cost...I don't want to post it on here. But, it's not unreasonable.
What I like about
him - is he doesn't mess around...he will treat all three B's and in a timely manner.
Yes, you take several antibiotics/antimalarials - sounds aggressive, but with the pulsed approach I find it more tolerable than taking fewer 'killing' meds on a daily basis.
