Specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme Disease and other tick borne illnesses.
About Our Office
The Lyme Center of New England was established in 2010 to provide specialized comprehensive care of Lyme disease and tick-borne illnesses in the New England area. Lyme disease is frequently complicated, and the available information is often confusing and conflicting. We realize that many patients and their families are suffering and frustrated. Our goal is to help provide patients with a diagnosis and a treatment plan.
We offer a caring, supportive environment with professionals who have significant experience providing individualized, patient-centered care to those diagnosed with Lyme and other related diseases and to those still struggling to find a diagnosis.
The practice is open to all ages from pediatric to geriatric.
