I am sorry you had a tick bite

most tick bites don't transmit lyme disease.

but if you get a rash, fever, body aches and pains, you have to see your doctor.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
