Katie Couric Show on Chronic Lyme

KatieIn case you missed the episode on the Katie Couric Show, I have it linked here. You’ll see Dr. Horowitz, internationally know Lyme doctor and Dr. Halprin, Infectious Disease doctor (not Lyme friendly) along with 2 guests who have suffered.
Interesting to hear how Dr. Halprin skirts around some questions by saying what he wanted out there, not what was asked. Also he states that most Infectious Disease docs test for all the co-infections…have any of you ever had tests for all of them??!! VERY RARE.
