Introduction To Dr. Daniel Cameron
Dr. Daniel Cameron, MD, MPH, is a nationally recognized leader for his expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses. For more than 25 years, he has been treating adolescents and adults suffering from Lyme disease.
Dr. Daniel Cameron & Associates, located in Mount Kisco, NY, has been serving patients since 1987. He also is affiliated with Northern Westchester Hospital in Mount Kisco. Within a year of opening his practice, Dr. Cameron, a board-certified internist and epidemiologist, began treating a growing number of patients exhibiting persistent, recurrent symptoms, including neurological manifestations, caused by chronic Lyme disease. He has since treated thousands of Lyme disease patients and become a pioneer in the field.
After receiving his medical degree from the University of Minnesota Medical School in 1981, he earned a master’s degree in public health from the University of Minnesota, which focused on chronic illness. After completing residencies at Beth Israel Medical Center and Mt. Sinai School of Medicine in New York City, Dr. Cameron served as Assistant Professor of Medicine in Geriatrics at the New York College of Medicine. He has also been heavily involved in clinical research.
Research and Teaching
His interest in research and teaching continues at his private practice where he manages the Lyme Disease Practice and Research (LDPR) project and mentors health care practitioners interested in learning more about Lyme and tick-borne diseases. Physicians and practitioners, from across the country, visit his office to receive on-site training and education in diagnosing and treating all stages of Lyme disease. Meanwhile, ongoing clinical trials are performed through the LDPR in an effort to improve the level of care for Lyme disease patients.
