Individuals looking for local doctors who treat Lyme disease may consult organizations that specialize in providing information about the disease, such as the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society or the American Lyme Disease Foundation. Both these organizations offer a physician referral service for Lyme disease.
The International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society aims to encourage the understanding of Lyme disease as well as provide support for professionals who facilitate the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease. Individuals seeking treatment for Lyme disease may fill in a form on the society's website to request a referral for a suitable doctor in their area. This involves supplying their location data and other relevant details, such as how far they are willing to travel to see a doctor for the treatment of Lyme disease.
The American Lyme Disease Foundation aims to provide accurate and dependable information about Lyme disease to help prevent, diagnose and cure the condition. It maintains a list of board-certified doctors who are familiar with Lyme disease. Individuals seeking treatment for Lyme disease may contact the American Lyme Disease Foundation via e-mail to request a referral for a suitable doctor in their area. Alternatively, the foundation advises individuals to contact a major health facility in their area for an appropriate referral.
