was sent to him with mycobacteria disease, he put me meds and one . these meds damaged my optic nerves in my eyes. I continuously said that I thought my vision was being effected. I had low vision for two years and my vision has problems because of this, he sends a nurse practioner to do his job, his staff does not know what they are doing and is the most uncaring doctor and with no conscience , he all this experience and knows , he puts people on drugs by symptoms , no Ct. I was so sick and needed help and wish I had known more about this bacteria. I would not recommend him to anyone.

Fair and Accurate Diagnosis

I am writing in ref. Dr. John D. Goldman Infectious d. dr. and internal med from Hgh. His statements in ref to lyme disease are extremely biased and are connected with helping insurance cos. out.He states that after the basic lyme treatment no bacteria is left in body. there are reputable journal articles how even after IV treatment for the so called 20 or so days and even longer they have found the bacteria (borrelia burgdorferi)on biopsy in tissues of body.He claims antibiotics are harmful-many people have improved highly from long term antibiotics. Yes at times the bacteria can become reistant and even changes its form and tricks the immune system.but a dr. switches to a different antibiotic,many times one has to use a combination.Strange how one can receive for yrs. antibiotics for acne, tuberculosis, leprosy which borrelia even in rare situations mimic some of leprosy skin symptoms. Also what about these poisoness meds. prescribed for rheumatoid arthritis which suppress ones immune system and knock out one's white blood cells. Oh that's OK, good for the pharmaceutical cos..Also odd one can be diagnosed with a neg. rheumatoid factor and still be diagnosed with rheumatoid A. But I person can come into a drs. office mainly and ID dr. with the big rash, half dead with the tick that he found on him and if the blood tests are neg. they say "YOu don't have lyme" Think about it you ID doctors..and Dr. Goldman esp. in ref. to his testimony not to pass the bill. Pitiful pitiful.It is very obvious Dr. Goldman and also the state medical board takes consulting fees from the ins. cos. to push this protocolAlso they do know the blood tests are only about 30% reliable and also 2 of the most important antibodies of the Western Blot blood test were removed in 1995 by the side by the leaders of the opposing side. Yes if gotten early most of the times it can be nipped in the bud.I wonder what Dr. Goldman and all those who believe as he does would do if he himself or a spouse, or sibling of his developed late stage lyme or was discovered late. Lyme can affect every organ of the body. It all depends on one's genetic weakness.Plus we do know there have been deaths from Lyme disease. What is going on within this disease is evil. It all boils down to the less people diagnosed the less the insurance cos. have to pay. I rate this doctor as having no conscience.
