A founding member of IDSA says IDSA guidelines are wrong

Chronic Lyme Patients Get Political Victory: New Book by Top Infectious Disease Doctor Supports Long Term Antibiotic Treatment

"Chronic Lyme disease does exist," says Burton A. Waisbren Sr. MD, FACP, FIDSA, in his new book, "Treatment of Chronic Lyme Disease: Fifty-One Case Reports and Essays in Their Regard." The book, released in January, 2012, adds fuel to the already fiery debate over the existence of chronic Lyme disease.

Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) February 24, 2012 -- Chronic Lyme disease has become one of the most hotly debated diseases in medical history.

Those who claim that the disease is fictitious have stood on the argument that the doctors who treat this condition are untrained in infectious disease and are unqualified to determine whether the syndrome is in fact a legitimate diagnosis.

Dr. Burton Waisbren's new book, "Treatment of Chronic Lyme Disease: Fifty-One Case Reports and Essays in Their Regard", has rendered such an argument invalid. Burton Waisbren, MD, FACP, FIDSA, has been practicing medicine for over 57 years. He is one of the Founding Members of the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) and has published research on Lyme disease in prestigious journals such as The Lancet. He is board-certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine and is a fellow of the American College of Physicians, as well as the Infectious Diseases Society of America. He is also a founding member of the American Burn Association and the Critical Care Society of America.

One thing is certain: Dr. Waisbren has the credentials to take an authoritative position on the chronic Lyme disease debate. And, like more and more experienced physicians, his position goes against the guidelines of the very organization of which he is a Founding Member: The Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA). Despite mounting scientific evidence, this organization continues to deny the reality of chronic Lyme disease. Sufferers of chronic Lyme disease are encouraged by Dr. Waisbren's position. "This doctor's credentials and experience are turning the tide in the chronic Lyme disease debate," says Bryan Rosner, a recovered Lyme patient and owner of BioMed Publishing Group (South Lake Tahoe, CA), the publishing company that markets Dr. Waisbren's new book.
