Dr. Spector suffered from misdiagnosed Lyme disease for many years, and during that time, his heart was affected. He was near death and only a heart transplant could save his life. He chronicled the experience in his riveting memoir, Gone in A Heartbeat: A Physician’s Search for True Healing.  Since then, Dr. Spector has become a unique advocate for Lyme patients. He thoroughly understands the patient’s viewpoint, including what it’s like to know that something is seriously wrong with your body and yet have doctors dismiss your symptoms.
