Doctor who treated chronic Lyme disease indicted

It is not unusual for doctors to lose their medical licenses if they treat Lyme aggressively and differently than main stream docs who are not up on the latest Lyme literature.

They lose their license to practice, endure years long legal battles that deplete their life savings and their patients do not get better under the care of other physicians who prescribe either no antibiotics or short term antibiotics. When this fails, their doctors then diagnosis ALS, Lupus, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, mental illness, eating disorders and other diseases. They never get better.

Some states, like mine, Rhode Island have laws to prevent this. Docs can treat as they believe is appropriate and health insurance must pay.

Problem is there are not too many Lyme literate doctors in Rhode Island or anywhere.
