This content was provided by Dr. Katz "1. Patients with complex health conditions need time to be heard. The standard time for a specialist is 45 minutes for an initial visit and 15 minutes for a follow up. Many of the patients I see come after visiting with dozens of physicians for several years. In 45 minutes they cannot cover the extent of their medical history. Nor will 15 minutes start addressing their ongoing condition on a follow up visit.
2. The doctor is the health advocate of his patient. The patient shouldn't feel that his doctor is confrontational or "doesn't believe" in the validity of his/her symptoms.
3. Any child, adolescent, or adult who develop abrupt changes in behavior, academic achievements, cognitive abilities, or physical condition should have a comprehensive medical and neurological work up, that in a Lyme endemic areas will include testing for tick borne diseases."
