It can be a great challenge to find a physician willing to treat Lyme Disease in most areas of Canada, as well as in the United States, and many other countries. There is support and there are folks with hints and directions on how to find a Lyme Literate Practitioner in your area. Remember that many MDs you may discover are often working under the radar and do not want to have their work openly advertised. Please respect that.
In Canada, as of the summer of 2017, it is now being reported that 100% of medical doctors who were treating chronic or long term Lyme disease in Canada have been shut down. We have heard “through the gravevine” that this isn’t completely true, but it is true that no MDs are openly treating anthing but the acute form of the disease now in Canada.
