LymeDisease.org – Connecting patients with

Lyme-Literate Specialists

Lyme disease patients have difficulty finding doctors with experience treating Lyme disease. For the past 25 years, LymeDisease.org has been connecting patients with Lyme-literate doctors who specialize in caring for patients with Lyme disease

We are happy to connect you with your nearest LLMD’s contact information. Note, however, that we do not have the resources to vet each Lyme specialist and we encourage you to assess the quality of your care to assure that you are satisfied.

Lyme Disease Treatment Is A Politically Charged Issue

Unfortunately, doctors who treat Lyme disease may be targeted for medical board action by physicians in other medical specialties or insurers. This climate has resulted in fewer doctors treating Lyme disease, fewer doctors who take insurance, and in patients having to travel greater distances to access care. In our big data project, MyLymeData, we found that:

51%

Of patients are not diagnosed with Lyme disease for 3 or more years.

50%

See 5 or more clinicians before they are diagnosed with Lyme disease.

72%

Are initially misdiagnosed.

70%

Of those with chronic Lyme disease are not diagnosed until they have late stage untreated Lyme.
