Hi. After 7 years of symptoms, my 25 year old daughter was finally dx'd last year when she briefly lived in the Wash. D.C. area. Her dx was through Igenex and more recently with a DNA Connexions PCR test. Between the two tests she shows Borrelia, Bartonella and Erlichiosis. She was on oral abx and supplements for a few months in D.C. but then moved back to southern Calif. She's had no treatment at all in the last 6 months as there are no LLMDs at all near her in SoCal. Now she'll be getting married and relocating, most likely permanently, to the Portland ME area, and we want her to start treatment as soon as possible after she gets there. We have no connections at all in New England (I'm in Calif. too), so are starting at square one. Any recommendations for LLMDs as well as Lyme-friendly PCPs and other doctors would be very helpful. Thank you.

Hi pbrown - welcome!


Sorry to hear about your daughter. There are LLMD's in Los Angelos, and even closer to San Diego - too bad she couldn't find one.

I do have some options for Maine. While it's best to get recommendations, if you don't get any or you still want more ideas..send me an email. (I don't usually have reviews on most of the LLMD's on my list)

In addition to recommendations, you can also contact ILADS Doctor search.

Thanks. She lives in Santa Barbara and she didn't like the closest LLMD that she saw in Thousand Oaks (although he did have her do the DNA Connexions test). The next closest one is in Beverly Hills which is impossible for her to get to during the work week. San Diego is way too far. If she were staying in the area longer term she'd make it work to get to one, but since she's going to be moving she figures she'll just wait. I will email you for the list of Maine drs.

I can give you names in Portsmouth, NH and Boston. The Dean Center for Tick Borne Illnesses at Spaulding Hospital is amazing. I believe there is a waiting list so she might want to contact them soon. Ster she is established as a patient they will do Tele-Medicine virtual visits.

Email me if you/she would like more information.

Good Luck,
Ed
