Lyme Disease Testing Lyme disease is usually caused by a bite from a deer tick. The disease can cause joint pain, aching muscles, and a tired feeling. Our full laboratory can perform a blood test for antibodies to the bacteria for the diagnosis of Lyme disease

For the first time, Lyme disease-carrying #ticks have been found in abundance near beach paths and scrubland. The CDC estimated as many as 476,000 Americans are diagnosed and treated for it annually

If you think you may have been exposed to ticks, bathe or shower within two hours of coming indoors. Look for ticks on your body and remove them, or come into the clinic for tick removal. You may request testing or our medical providers can advise you if further screening for Lyme disease should be performed.
