I've given you Dr D's name before, he's been retired since 2015 or so. Sam Donta was a leading lyme research doctor from the very early days of learning about
this disease. He was one of the few "good" ID Ducks around and was a member of the IDSA committee that formulated their crappy guidelines on no such thing as Chronic Lyme and easy to cure in 30 days. After placing the only dissenting vote and it became too political, he quit the committee. He was a frequent guest speaker at many ILADS conferences, but never actually became a member.
His research team was I believe credited with isolating the neurotoxin responsible for causing a herx. He also had a pretty good clinical practice treating lyme in parallel to his research work. He was great at diagnosing Lyme and took insurance (very rare), but a little weak in targeting co's. He was also good about
staying above State Medical Board scrutiny.
Sam Donta and Marc Cartwright hold a patent on Bb neurotoxin. http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=/netahtml/PTO/srchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=6,667,038.PN.&OS=PN/6,667,038&RS=PN/6,667,038
