NK doctor defends Lyme disease treatment practices

June 19, 2014

NORTH KINGSTOWN—For many local residents, Dr. James Gloor has been a crucial resource in their fight against Lyme Disease. Now, the North Kingstown practitioner of 32 years is the subject of a Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) investigation, one which he claims is unfair and guided by special interest.
Since 2012, Gloor, who operates Wickford Junction Medical Walk-In on Ten Rod Road, has been investigated by the RIDOH’s Board of Medical Licensure and Discipline, which originally claimed that he had been misdiagnosing and mistreating patients for Lyme disease after receiving complaints from six of his patients.
Gloor claims that the board and its members are targeting him in a ‘witch-hunt,’ and that the RIDOH and Rhode Island Hospital are ignoring patients who have appealed to them for treatment of chronic Lyme disease.
