If you are reading this page it is likely because you are dealing with an issue with internal parasites. You have probably been dismissed, or worse, by the doctors you have seen, whether in the emergency room, or your primary care provider. Unfortunately, unless they specialize in the subject, most doctors don’t have the knowledge to diagnose, let alone, treat you. It is important that you understand that All About Worms cannot diagnose you for parasites either – we are not medical professionals; but we can point you to some medical professionals, and testing labs, where you can get the help you need!
Laboratories Where You Can Get Tested for Parasites
We have partnered with the following laboratories because they don’t require a doctor’s order for you to get tested, you can order the test yourself.
Even though it may not feel like it right now, there are doctors out there who know about parasites that infect humans, and who can help you. Here are some of those doctors, as well as how to find other such doctors in your area:
Dr. Omar Amin at the Parasitology Center at parasitetesting.com, 480-767-2522
In addition to “Dr. Amin’s broad zoological experience and research history in Africa, the middle East, Asia, and the Americas”, Dr. Amin has identified a medical basis for the symptoms of what up until now has been called Morgellan’s; Dr. Amin calls this syndrome Neuro-cutaneous Syndrome (NCS), and it is due to toxins leached over a period of time into the body, primarily from dental work. Many of NCS’s symptoms mimic that of a parasitic infection, including feeling of crawling under the skin, open sores (causing those afflicted to be accused by doctors unfamiliar with the syndrome of “using drugs”), thread-like things coming from the skin, and more. You can read more about this specifically here.
Dr. Vipul Savaliya of Infectious Disease Care at idcarepa.com, 910-729-6552
