I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Myerhoff because I had been told that he was an expert in post-Lyme syndrome. I was 10 minutes late due to complications from an eye surgery the day before. (I had expected to be in the ophthalmologist's office for a post-op check up for 30 minutes and ended up staying there for 3.5 hours. This appointment was important to me and I hurried to the office e as quickly as I could after the ophthalmologist released me.) I apologized profusely to the staff for being late. I was told it was no problem and put in an exam room. Then Dr. Myerhoff came to the doorway, stood there with arms folded, and angrily berating me for being late. I tried to explain about the surgical complications, but he talked over me. He went on to accuse me of being one of "those people" who "thought" I had chronic Lyme disease when it didn't exist. After this outburst, he sent me back to the waiting room so he could see a patient who came to his appointment on time, "unlike me". When he finally examined me, his first question was "What on earth is wrong with your eyes?" I went to this doctor because he was highly recommended and I hoped he could help solve the mystery of why I did not improve after IV treatment for Lyme Disease. Instead of helping me, he badgered and humiliated me. I would not return to see him if he were the last doctor on earth.
