Episode 165: Giant's Shoulders - an Interview with Doctor Joseph Burrascano
Dr. Burrascano paved the way for today's LLMDs
Dr. Joseph Burriscano is America's first Lyme Literate Medical Doctor (LLMD). He began practicing medicine in Lyme endemic eastern Long Island, New York, a short time and distance from where the first Lyme infected ticks examined by Dr. Willy Burgdorfer were dragged. Dr. Burriscano's clinical observations resulted in the discovery and development of diagnostic and treatment protocols that were considered taboo in the 1980's and 1990's which have become gold standards for LLMDs today. He is now considered one of the world's leading experts in the treatment of Lyme disease. He has appeared on virtually every television, radio and newspaper outlet, published 16 scholarly papers in medical journals and advised governmental agencies including the NIH, CDC, armed services subcommittee and the US Senate. Currently, Dr. Burriscano works full time in the biotech arena at IGeneX (website, Instagram). If you would like to learn more about America's first Lyme Literate Medical Doctor, then tune in Now!
