Dr. Alan MacDonald was featured on the Tick Boot Camp Podcast:

 

Hospital Pathologist
Dr. MacDonald is a retired hospital pathologist, but his world is microscopic images.

Advanced Diagnostics
He diagnoses disease, like Lyme, daily based on the image profiles from surgically removed tissues, blood smears, and microbiology specimens. In his research, which he does at night and on the weekends as energy permits, he interpret images from diseased tissues.

Lyme Spirochetes
Many of the images of “spirochetes” in textbooks demonstrate only the “perfect corkscrew” profile-leading a reader to “doubt” the legitimacy of cystic or granular forms, and the reject cell wall deficient “L-Forms”

Dr. MacDonald educates doctors and patients about the “forgotten” spirochetal forms which are really Borrelia and which exist in diseased tissue.

Lyme Research at Southampton Hospital
Dr. MacDonald worked in the Eastern Long Island area (Hamptons), where money and donors are abundant. Generous contributions to the Southampton Hospital Borrelia Research Program allowed Dr. MacDonald to be a pioneer in the Lyme community.
