Why Do Sufferers of the Chronic Effects

of Lyme Disease Seek My Care?

   Obviously, great results is the #1 reason sufferers of chronic Lyme want my treatment, which various testimonial letters on this website document.  But I'm sure you'd like to know what is different about me, and my treatment methods. 

    You may be surprised to learn that the Virginia Board of Medicine prohibits any doctor from claiming superiority over another.  And I never make such a claim.  It is however, an indisputable fact that I provide a combination of several effective, but extremely rare health services, which to my knowledge are not provided by any other practitioner. 

   The term, genius is too frequently used these days.  

I am certainly not one.  However, I have studied the works

of several true medical/scientific geniuses, and pursued

expertise in the methods they developed, combined with

my own personal touch.  I take credit only for my willingness

and effort to provide outstanding healthcare.  My wife, Sheila's

life depended upon it, as perhaps does yours too.

   This is part of what has attracted people for my services:  

  •  3-Phase Auricular Therapy, a specialized form of acupuncture (done needle-free or with needles) is a magnificent method, which was developed by award-winning, French neurologist, Paul Nogier, M.D., with an impressive array of international published medical research.  I have had the privilege of providing this treatment for which I am licensed by the medical board.  It is an essential part of my protocol to help those with chronic pain and illness.  It clears energetic blockages to healing (a concept not well-accepted or understood by traditional Western medicine), using the outer ear as a direct energetic portal to the brain.  This is a feat that cannot be accomplished using body acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).

  • Auricular Bio-energetic Testing:   This is an evaluation method, also developed by Dr. Nogier, and furthered by the brilliant energy medicine researcher, practitioner (and traditional medical anesthesiologist), Nader Soliman, M.D.  This approach, for which I was trained by Dr. Soliman, enables us to find causes and corrections of many problems that cannot be detected by traditional diagnostic tests. 

  • Bio-Energetic Supplementation:There are many approaches to natural and holistic medicine.  It is an entire subject in itself.  My patients do not merely taking some supplements to try to treat some symptoms of Lyme.  It is a complex and comprehensive system that approaches all body systems, organs, as well as supporting your immune system to fight specific causative micro-organisms.    

  • Neuro-Structural Correction with The Atlas Orthogonal procedure (for which I am one of the few board certified doctors in the world) is a treatment that reduces nerve compression at the base of the skull and upper neck.  It has been instrumental in restoring quality of life to many chronic pain sufferers.  Some chronic Lyme patients have spinal problems that are part of their overall bad health picture.  For my patients who travel from out-of-state, I often recommend this procedure, or other chiropractic care as part of their quest for wellness. 

   Having been been frequently asked why chronic Lyme sufferers (and other people) seek my care, I have, in turn, asked my patients to help me give answers, since it is THEIR opinion that counts. 

    I've written this article, in addition to separate ones for each of the treatment methods (and others) mentioned above.  I appreciate my patients for their feedback, which has always helped me to help others have a chance for a better quality of life. 

In Addition to the #1 Reason, RESULTS...
Here's the Top 10 reasons (in no special order)
Why Chronic Lyme Disease Sufferers Seek My Care:  

1)  I am open-minded and NOT an extremist: Patients have appreciated that although I practice exclusively drugless and non-surgical methods... I believe in an integrative health care model, which includes the opinions, testing, and treatment from doctors of ALL disciplines and philosophies of health.  My treatments are all compatible with those of traditional Western medicine.  Some Lyme sufferers seek my care as their sole approach to wellness. Others prefer to seek multiple professionals, and take prescription drugs in addition to my treatment.  Whatever works for you is fine with me!

2) No "Cure-All" Claims: Truth in advertising is one of my most cherished beliefsIf I accept you as a patient, I will simply tell you that I think I can help.  No outrageous promises or guarantees.  No "one size fits all" or "cookie-cutter" treatment that promises to be the "end all, cure all." 

Can doctors who diagnose Lyme, and prescribe antibiotics as the treatment legitimately make such a statement?

   I won't be able to know for sure if you will have success with my care.  I wish I could be certain.  I won't be able to predict how fast, or how much improvement you will be able to achieve.  People of a wide range of ages, and degrees of illness respond at unpredictable rates.

However, if I do accept you as a patient... I will give you realistic hope... and I will confidently EXPECT your success.  After all, there are two things at stake: your health... and my reputation. 

3) Your chronic Lyme and related symptoms are taking seriously: At no time will I tell you that your symptoms are psychosomatic (all in your head), nor will you be told to "live with the pain" because nothing can be done.  Nor will your age or your weight be used as an excuse to blame you for your condition.  Too many patients have told me that a doctor has told them this lazy, cop-out of an excuse for inability to find solutions.

4) SAFETY.... SAFETY... SAFETY: No treatment is without some risk.  However, I am proud to use treatments that to my knowledge, have unparalleled safety...  Using primarily homeopathy, which has no known side effects assures this.

5) Human Decency, Respect, Personal Attention, and TLC: It is not a coincidence that The Liebell Clinic has the initials, TLC.  When you choose me to help you recover from symptoms of chronic Lyme, you become a respected and cared for member of our family.  You are NOT a name and number.  You will enter a solid relationship with a doctor and staff who will go the "extra mile" for you... to help you get well, after all else has failed... after others have treated you harshly, hurt your feelings, called you "crazy," and told you "nothing can be done."

6) A whole-body, total health approach: Patients know that I acknowledge the symptoms categorized into the medically accepted diagnosis of chronic Lyme disease.  However, they also understand and appreciate that I do NOT treat the diagnosis; I treat the patient.  It is clear that those who come to see me are not those who accept the antibiotic approach as a healthy solution.

7) The "No Ego Zone" -- a doctor who listens, and respects YOU, your health opinions, feedback and requests: Ask me anything... tell me anything.  I'm going to listen and respect you as part of our team, which has the simple and single goal of restoring your health and improving your quality of life as much as humanly possible.  The Liebell Clinic is not about me... it's about YOU (But please forgive me for naming it after myself... it's what makes the initials TLC work!).

8) Access to top experts - Advisory Board: Although I'm a sole practitioner, I have relationships with experts in various disciplines, who serve as my advisors to assist me upon need.  Click HERE to learn about the Liebell Clinic Medical Advisory Board.

9) Minimal Waiting Times: I don't like to be late, and I don't like my time wasted.  I value your time as much as my own.  We run a "tight ship" and do NOT overbook our schedule.  Many medical offices schedule 2 or more people in the same time slot.  We actually underbook our schedule.  This keeps waiting time for appointments minimal... and face-to-face doctor-patient time maximal.
10)I perform ALL examination & treatment myself: You don't play waiting room and treatment room "musical chairs"... seeing a physician assistant, waiting more, and finally seeing the doctor for a couple of minutes.  I want things done right, and I do it myself.  My office is small; but our chronic Lyme disease recovery patient family is large.  My wonderful assistant, Barbara, and Sheila (my wife and office manager) do all the right things that enable me to give you the attention you really need.
