About Us


LymeMD, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, was created in 2007 by Dr. John Aucott, an infectious disease specialist, in response to the devastating toll that Lyme disease takes on previously healthy, energetic individuals. LymeMD has become a nationally recognized program attracting top collaborators around the country.

This website is for informational purposes and is not a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Always seek advice from your physician or qualified health provider with questions about a medical condition.

LymeMD is a national leader in research and education about Lyme disease. Since our website is staffed by non-medical volunteers, we are unable to give medical advice or answer specific questions about Lyme disease. Researching our site and links may provide answers to many of your questions. We also encourage you to contact your medical provider, health department, or regional medical center.
