At the Lyme Disease Diagnostic Center, we offer the following services.

  • Focused Medical Evaluation
    If you have a rash or bite and/or have reason to believe that you may have been bitten by a tick or have Lyme Disease or another tick-borne disease, we will conduct a diagnostic evaluation and examination to identify if you are at risk and advise as needed.
  • Laboratory testing for tick-borne diseases as necessary
    Please note: costs of lab tests are not included in visit fee.
