For West Coast patients hoping to see an established East Coast LLMD with decades of experience treating Lyme and tick-borne illnesses, Dr Steven Bock is a wonderful opportunity and addition to physicians in California.
"The bite is as small as a pin poke, but tick-borne Lyme disease can impact a patient’s life for weeks, months or even years.
Dr. Steven Bock, who operates a private practice in Rhinebeck, has seen an upswing in the number of his patients in the last 29 years who suffer from Lyme disease. Nearly 75 percent of his patients have been treated for the illness, he said.
Lyme can then cause a range of symptoms, including headaches, joint pain or flu-like symptoms. Lyme can even affect cognitive functions, like loss of short term memory, Bock said.
The gamut of symptoms, Bock said, sends perplexed patients to several specialists, such as cardiologists, neurologists and rheumatologists before they cross the threshold into his office.
