The office lied about having enough parking which delayed my appointment just long enough for the doctor to randomly leave the office for an emergency.

I am also sorry that our visit didn't go so well. Infectious Disease consultation requires a detailed history and physical and sometimes it is stressful for some patients to discuss things that make them uncomfortable. It is also not uncommon to tell patients things they disagree with, which makes our job even more difficult to explain the reasons for those opinions. Issues that surround "chronic Lyme" diagnoses are even more challenging as we need to consider many other possibilities. Good luck
