"I am so happy to have a Lyme literate doctor close by, especially one who is a pleasant, positive person! Even better is that Dr. Chesney has a passionate interest in this disease and its treatment, that she is a doctor who listens and who offers options for treatment, who is willing to work as part of my medical team of practitioners. I also like very much that she seems to be tireless in the role of educating the area public regarding tickborne diseases, related disease prevention and explaining to the public about their options for treatment." - Anonymous
