Specialties

Dr. Linda S Yancey has the following 2 specialties

  • Infectious Disease

    An infectious disease specialist has specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of contagious diseases.
    Infectious diseases, also known as contagious or transmissible diseases, are those that stem from pathogen from a host organism. These infections may spread to other carriers through physical touch, airborne inhalation, bodily fluids or contaminated foods.
    Infectious disease specialists identify whether the disease is caused by bacteria, a virus, a fungus or a parasite often through blood tests and then determine what course of treatment, if any, is necessary.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Although nice and professional, I do not recommend going to her if you have or think you have chronic Lyme. Just like one of the other conments, she never examined me and gave me a 30 minute talk about the history of Lyme, all of which I have researched and know. She does not believe in chronic Lyme and said that the chronic Lyme model makes her so mad because it gives people false hope. She also said that there are not a lot of ticks in Texas and Lyme is rare here. Again, she is very nice and professional, but I recommend you see a LLD for acute or chronic Lyme.

MYCOBATERIUM INFECTION FROM PEDICURE

Too early to tell if treatment will be successful long term. Treatment is horrible in that the medications are VERY strong and make you sick to your stomach.

This doctor represents herself as a doctor who will treat chronic Lyme disease. She doesn't. She will bill for a "consult", only to lecture you about how Lyme disease doesn't exist in Texas and that chronic Lyme disease doesn't exist at all. She never so much as offered to examine me. She needs to educate herself further in Lyme disease before giving such "advice". Fortunately, a bill was passed in the state of Texas to educate doctors, such as herself.
