Neil Spector, MD, knows a lot about cancer. He’s one of the country’s top oncologists and is a cancer researcher at Duke University School of Medicine. He knows a lot about Lyme disease, too—from personal experience. Dr. Spector suffered from misdiagnosed Lyme disease for many years, and during that time, his heart was battered and beaten up by the unrecognized illness. Although he was eventually diagnosed and treated for Lyme, by then his heart was severely damaged.
