I don't know but I can tell you that I don't test positive at Stonybrook. If I couldn't use Igenex I would pick MDL before Stonybrook.
[COLOR="Purple"][B]okay just my opinion ...but most likely the doctors get "kick backs" from certain labs they use..Just like they do when they prescribe medications. I know when I was bouncing around from doctor to doctor...They would send me to their other doctors in the same shoot what is the word. Like the same group. They all keep patients flowing to one another. make sense?

Think I would find a different doctor. Or tell him you want a certain lab and go with that...

My test never came out positive with any lab ...But I did get some bands pulled up...soooo Igenex didn't give me a false positive...shoot wish I they had maybe I could of been treated earlier....;)

Lymes IS a very political disease....too many doctors turn their backs on people that need treatment so they can save their own....A** is all about the big $$ ...not in helping people.

Go with your gut but I would stick to Igenex any day! Kind of like how many doctors out there take the time to call a person back about their Lyme test. I know the doctor at Igenex talked to me persoanlly and didn't charge me...and I see that he takes time to call others. don't see these other labs doing they obviously believe in what they are doing...



3love... Stonybrook used to have a big lyme research center with many doctors strictly working with lyme and lyme patients... They have shut that down and the doctors have moved on.. They still test for lyme there, but they are just like any lab now, they no longer specialize in lyme.. I live only about 20 minutes from there, and with my job i work closely with them, so i did alot of checking on there knowledge of lyme... its no difference then any other hospital.. I did test with them and it came back positive.. but so did the other 10 lyme tests i had done... It doesnt matter how many tests or bands you have.. only a LLMD will give proper treatment and test for all co-infections... I have been to 25+ doctors.. best of the best and had so much bloodwork saying i was positive and couldnt get the doctors to treat me properly... Thank God for my LLMD... I will be forever grateful...
3love.. I tested with stonybrook after they closed the research lab down.. Actually it was this past july.. I was really sick (before I started any treatment) and I went to thier ER.. I spoke to the ER dr and was questioning him on how good I had heard they were with lyme.. He didnt even know that at one point they had a research center and specialized in lyme.. I asked them when they took my blood to test for lyme.. The titer came back positive so I asked them to do a western blot test and they told me it would take one week because they send it out of state to do the western blot.. I couldnt understand how come they didnt do western blot test when they used to specialize in lyme.. Also my neuro Mr. best of the best refused to send my blood to Igenex he said he would rather go to stonybrook..I explained to him that they dont specialize in lyme anymore and they dont test WB.. He told me I was wrong and sent my blood there.. In return they sent it out of state for the WB and it took 3 weeks to get it back.. but the weird thing is I do know someone who had their WB done there about 8 months ago.. So I dont know why they didnt do mine.. Who knows but they arent great when it comes to lyme..
