Review of "Under Our Skin"

Great documentary. It shows the human side of Lyme. It doesn't talk much about treatment.
Dr. Donata, an infectious disease specialist is one of the heroes of the Lyme movement. Dr. MacDonald's work is exciting. Dr. Burrascano is a great guy; too bad he doesn't see patients anymore. He went through a lengthy board investigation in NY, eventually won. It took the wind out of his sails. Dr. Jemsek went bankrupt and opened in S. Carolina. I can see why his fees are so high. He is too expensive for most folks. Dr. Jones is a great guy. He is still practicing at 80 and trying to raise money for his legal defense. My patients get better. If you have severe Lyme you need an aggressive doctor who is familiar with latest treatments. Get the movie and show it to family and friends. Lyme can be helped in 90% of the cases. Don't give up.
