What a Complete Waste of Time - Rheumy in Kansas City?

Just had my first appointment with a Rheumatologist. He was an egotistical jerk who gave me no answers. He did no history and physical, just read the paperwork my doctor's office sent over (and misinterpreted it), told me that most labs are incompetent when it comes to running these tests and that he wants to re-run everything (I think he just wants to bill for them) and that he'll see me again in a week.

I waited 45 minutes in his office to get 5 minutes of his time and no answers. Ugh, now I need to start looking for a new doctor. Regardless of the results, I want a second opinion and, assuming everything is still positive for Lupus, I don't want to see him anymore.

Anyone have a good Rheumatologist in the Kansas City area?
