What kind of Doctor I have to see with suspected Lyme Disease?
Greetings from New York, this is Dr. Jerry E. I'm so glad you asked this question, let me give you some medical information now.

You must seek immediate medical attention, and visit an emergency room if you believe you have lyme disease. (An ER doctor's evaluation is needed)

I had a tick bite and bool's eye sympton three months ago. I wasn't aware about the danger at this time, so I have ignored this as " just a bug bite". Since this time I didn't have any wisible symptons. Do I need to go to Doctor? If yes, what Doctor? This is my question.
Yes. You need to see an emergency room doctor as he/she will be able to provide the most efficient care for you.

Should I go to emergency room without symptons?
I would suggest that or scheduling the first available appointment with your primary care physician. Let either doctor know of your tick bite and symptoms 3 months ago. If left untreated, Lyme Disease can have very serious consequences.
