Lyme Disease Testimonials

I Knew I Had Lyme*

A person going through lyme disease testing

I want to thank everyone at LifeWorks for all the caring treatments I received during my 6 weeks of treatment. I had been to many doctors in VT and NH knowing in my heart I had Lyme. Every test I had came back negative (I was told I had Fibromyalgia). While I wasn’t as sick as some with Lyme, I knew I had it. Being a very active personal all my life, I wasn’t even able to walk a half mile or stand for long periods of time without being in excruciating pain. The way the disease works, I knew it was only a matter of time before it would be more debilitating.

I was going to be in Florida for the winter, so I started googling Lyme specialists and Dr Minkoff was the first to show up. I did my research, then made an appointment. I started treatment for what I was sure I had – Lyme! (Dr. Minkoff confirmed). I did 6 weeks of treatment and feel great, without large doses of antibiotics. It is not an easy treatment, but oh so worth it. I am working to regain my strength and know I will be back hiking again soon. I miss all the great people at LifeWorks, staff and patients. Thanks for giving me my life back.
