Q. I need a Lyme LIterate Doctor in MA Moving to MA - son has chronic Lyme

A. Hi! Where are you moving to? I'm here in Boston with early Lyme that I hope is not going chronic (the treatment I've taken so far is only suppressing it, and it comes back if I stop antibiotics).

Apparently there is a Dr. Sam Donta who works in Falmouth and Boston: 508-539-6666. But he is pretty busy.
