If you are looking for a doctor that will take the time to not only discover what is causing your symptoms, but will also make sure you are heard during your appointment, Dr. Crist is the one for you. From long appointment times, to extensive methods for testing and treatment, Dr. Crist examines your symptoms through a number of different lenses. After years of experience dealing with chronically ill patients Dr. Crist says, “When patients use words like weird, strange or crazy, usually they have a Lyme disease-like illness.” The symptoms that his patients face vary extensively and no one patient is exactly like another. Tick-borne infections may imitate almost any symptom or disease, but the top medical problems Dr. Crist diagnosis and treats are pain, fatigue, brain/cognitive, eye, and neurological problems. A lot of time and care is put into diagnosing and helping each patient and ninety-seven percent of Dr. Crist’s patients get better after his treatments.
