Dr. Phillips continues to speak out about the seriousness of MSIDS. In this news clip he is frank about the complexity of LD.

He states that Lyme causes so many subjective things. He points out that if you look at the ILADS guidelines on how to treat Lyme there aren’t specifics. He also educates that MSIDS patients have to be their own best advocate, and use common sense.
Dr. Phillips stated he is looking for another physician to join him. If you know of anyone, please send them his way. For those of you who feel so led, please send a card and thank him for speaking up for those who can’t speak for themselves. Please don’t call unless you want to see him as a patient. He is completely booked through to September.
