"Chronic Lyme Not Recognized She was polite but not aware of my findings to believe the existence of what I was diagnosed with as past 20 + years lyme patient with several coinfections. Obviously has no outside of box thinking considering chronic lyme . Told me there is no such thing as chronic lyme , said brain fog isn’t associated with lyme, there is no biofilm in the body.. all people with long term lyme would understand what this means. Summed up to possibly arthritis or aging pains. Concurred that the tests offered are unreliable inaccurate yet claimed with a scientific positive blood test, she would treat with doxycycline for 21 days . Yet test are inaccurate, which is hypocritical with believing what herself claimed- if you treat that positive result patient, the false results patient perhaps has had an inaccurate test and really is positive for lyme..So that patient gets zero treatment and sent away. I felt very disregarded, my illness is real to me, disruptive to my life and I ...
was looking for hope to be helped. Lost my lyme doc as he was dealing with insurance court fighting to keep his license to practice, and I live so far from his location. I’m sure this doc is great with things she has experience in, however to not connect with things I the patient know to be certain with my body and what this illness has done as impossible to consider that chronic lyme does exist.. people all over the world know this and suffer due to this kind of mentality. Just disappointing for me.. "

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
