Amherst, New Hampshire (PRWEB) August 14, 2015
Over 60% of the ticks are infected in the State of New Hampshire with the highest rate of ticks borne infection in the nation. The wait is long to receive medical care from Lyme disease specialist with more chronic symptoms. Here in New Hampshire waits can range from one to ten months time, with many doctors closed to seeing new patients.
Julia Greenspan, Naturopathic Doctor and Lyme disease specialist will now be offering Group Visit Model to serve patients waiting for medical care for Lyme disease. To our knowledge this would be the first clinic to offer this visit style for tick borne disease.
Lyme Disease treatment is time sensitive with earlier intervention decreasing the likelihood of developing long term chronic disease. Group visit model offers the following benefits:
