Dr Miller is an experienced retired Mayo clinic trained physician who practiced Internal Medicine and Rheumatology in San Antonio for 40 years and worked as clinical faculty at the University of Texas Health Science Centre as Full Professor. This short and informative 4-part series is certainly a worthwhile watch.
He became interested in Lyme disease after his daughter in law was diagnosed with MS/ALS at the age of 43 and as he started to ask questions and connect the dots - he started to dig further into the clinical and scientific literature. He discovered that she was actually suffering from Lyme disease even though her Lyme test was reported as negative. He delves into the issues surrounding the current Lyme testing - used both in the US and in Canada - which is a two step process and is failing many patients resulting in misdiagnosis.
The first step is an ELISA test - if this test is negative, the second test isn't done and the patient is declared to be negative. Dr Miller reviews the reasons why the Lyme testing is inadequate and more comprehensive testing needs to be done with an understanding of how to properly interpret the findings. He has become vocal in speaking out and educating other doctors and frontline practitioners about what he discovered as a means of preventing other patients from being misdiagnosed.
Dr. Miller is an amazing physician with a desire to reach out and help as many others as possible - which indeed is what we all must do when we discover important truths that have the potential to impact the lives and futures of many.
