About Us

Welcome to the Lyme Disease Institute of Texas

Beginning as a bullseye rash from the bite of a deer tick, most do not expect the onset of debilitating symptoms that can manifest from chronic Lyme disease.

Located in San Antonio, Texas, the Lyme Disease Institute of Texas uses an integrative approach to diagnose and treat Lyme disease by combining traditional and alternative modalities for a powerful medical intervention.

Helping alleviate symptoms such as fatigue, headaches and cognitive impairment, our team is dedicated to restoring your daily function.
