The most emotional moment of the hearing (that I saw) occurred when Dr Ken Liegner, ILADS member, showed a video clip of his patient Vicki Logan from June 22, 2001.
She also had words of praise for Dr Liegner, telling him on-camera that without his help she wouldn't even have lived as long as she did.

Dr. Kenneth Liegner is a Board Certified Internist with additional training in Pathology and Critical Care Medicine, practicing in Pawling, New York. He has been actively involved in diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease and related disorders since 1988. He has published articles on Lyme disease in peer-reviewed scientific journals and has presented poster abstracts and talks at national and international conferences on Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases. He has cared for many persons seriously ill with chronic and neurologic Lyme disease. His work has focused on the serious morbidity and (occasional) mortality that can eventuate from this aspect of the illness. He has emphasized the urgent need for widespread clinical availability of improved methods of diagnostic testing and for development of improved methods of treatment for Lyme disease in all its stages. He holds the first United States patent issued proposing application of acaricide to deer for area-wide control of deer-tick populations as a means of reducing the incidence of Lyme disease.

"There are two camps, unfortunately, that have been at war for the past 20-plus years, and it is a very bitter and contested situation, and one of the most contentious issues in the history of medicine," said Kenneth B. Liegner, an internal medicine physician in Pawling, N.Y., in one of the nation's most endemic Lyme regions. He also serves on the board of directors of the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society, which has set treatment guidelines for chronic Lyme disease.

But people like Dr. Kenneth Liegner, a noted Lyme disease specialist in New York who believes that Lyme cases are underestimated in the South, say the system of reporting is flawed. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reporting guidelines say a Lyme disease diagnosis requires the characteristic bulls-eye rash or specific involvement of the Musculoskeletal, nervous or cardiovascular system and a positive blood test.
Liegner believes those rules mean physicians miss a lot of cases. "There are hundreds of strains of the Lyme's organism," Liegner says. A typical Lyme's test screens only for one.
