Diagnosis & Testing:
Every Patient is treated individually and has a comprehensive evaluation to determine the cause of their chronic fatigue and illness. Dr Lisa Zimmermann will utilize many newer blood test done by Lab Corp and Quest to evaluate all sources of infectious agents viral, tick borne and bacterial pathogens. Laboratory testing by Igenex may be recommended if needed to diagnose tick borne illness as traditional testing can give false negative testing in up to 40% of cases.
Additional Testing will investigate immune system dysfunction, food allergies, thyroid and adrenal imbalances- to name a few areas that can cause chronic illness.

Will you always get a bulls eye rash?
Lyme Disease is not always associated with a bulls eye rash. In fact 40% of infections do not have the rash to identify the illness.
I tested negative but I feel achy all over, tired and everything hurts?
