Nova Scotia: “U.S. doctors head to Pictou County to challenge Lyme disease status quo”
September 5th, 2019 by Andrew Rankin
Dr. Marty Ross wants Lyme sufferers in Nova Scotia to know that there are better treatment options out there and that’s precisely why the U.S. physician is presenting his case in the province Friday.
“My mission in life is to help those people as best I can to get well,” said the physician who combines both herbal and antibiotic medicine to treat the disease. His list of Canadian patients is growing.
“There are people that need help. I have a skill set that I’m able to do that and I’ve seen really good results.”
Ross will be part of a panel of experts in the field of Lyme who will be presenting to both health-care practitioners and the public at Pictou County Wellness Centre in New Glasgow on Friday. While the Nova Scotia Health Authority doesn’t endorse his treatment methods they are accepted by the Washington State Medical Commission. But not without a fight. The commission had launched a review of his treatment methods a year ago. He decided to temporarily close his clinic during the review but was informed three months ago he faced no restrictions. He plans to reopen his Seattle-based practise in the fall.
