I think you are missing the point. The symptoms of Lyme Disease are common things and could indicate literally thousands of different things. It has nothing to do with the skill of the doctor. If you go to a doctor with 4 symptoms of Lyme Disease, the doctor would have to test you for dozens of different diseases, most of them more common than Lyme Disease, and many of them without a quick and effective treatment or test so they can be ruled out quickly.

Unless in your history you give the doctor you mention a tick bite, or hiking a lot, or you remember and mention, or still have the rash, a good doctor would have 10 things in their head before they think of Lyme Disease.
