Practice of Dr. Daniel Jaller
Welcome to my new practice focused on the management of Lyme and other tick borne diseases. I manage patients with chronic Lyme disease based on the ILADS' model.
I also welcome patients with a variety of complex disorders requiring extra time with a physician.
Some of my patients have: fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, headaches, multi-system disease, and metabolic disorders including obesity, neuro-endocrine disorders such as POTS, immunological disorders and psychological issues.
With 30 years of clinical experience as a physician, I am now focusing my efforts on chronically ill patients for whom standard medical approaches do not work, and for whom a different paradigm may be needed.
I am happy to announce the addition of low pressure hyperbaric oxygen therapy to my practice. This type of therapy has been successfully been used in a wide array of medical conditions. Traditionally it has been used for such things as non-healing diabetic wounds, gangrene and other acute and severe medical conditions. More recently hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been used for chronic medical illnesses such as: autism, chronic Lyme disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, migraines, traumatic brain injuries and many more. Daily sessions for a month or more are generally required for success.
MORE ABOUT ME AND THE PRACTICE BELOW --
As I see it:
Having practiced general medicine in Northern Montgomery County Maryland for more than 25 years, I now find myself moving in a new direction, into a new arena, one of great controversy: an epidemic which is both devastating and tragic or much ado about nothing - depending on your perspective.
Lyme disease is more subtle than AIDS or the plague, but nonetheless strikes with incredible ferocity. The disease has been marginalized by a mainstream medical community while patients suffer.
Lyme has many faces. Primarily it strikes the nervous system and the musculoskeletal system; but very little is outside its reach.
Lyme disease is truly the great masquerader.
Patients may have severe neurocognitive deficits mimicking multiple sclerosis or dementia. Or patients may suffer with intractable pain syndromes of arthritis and neuropathy. The list of Lyme related disorders is almost too long to list.
Many patients are inappropriately diagnosed with: chronic
fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, depression or other mood and psychiatric disorders.
Many patients see countless specialists before seeking out a diagnosis, based not on the advice of their doctor, but rather on information gleaned from friends or the internet.
This is because of the sharp divide within the medical community. Mainstream medicine teaches that Lyme disease, for the most part, is mild and easy to fix. Mainstream medicine purports that chronic Lyme disease is a fiction. The best primary care physicians are educated along these lines, so they are not the ones to blame.
I live and practice medicine in ground zero of this devastating -- frequently frustrating and unseen epidemic. Knowing the reality of the epidemic, I am compelled to treat Lyme disease in its chronic forms; and as a physician I see no other choice.
I strive to offer the best medical care possible.
I believe the cornerstone of good medical practice is a thorough medical history and physical examination.
I try to make sure I get the diagnosis right. Patients frequently suffer with many other medical problems which also need to be addressed in the management of the whole person.
All patients over the age of 11 are welcome.
