    How was your appointment with Dr. Shikhman?

    Sep 13, 2019
    I've not seen Dr. Shikhman yet but his PA Neenah has been highly professional and knowledgeable for Lyme. If you've been tagged with the "fibromyalgia" or "CFS" aka "your disease doesn't match my medical textbook" or "let me recommend a therapist" this place maybe your answer.
