I live in the Valley Forge area, approximately 15-20 miles from Philly. I finally found a WONDERFUL rheumatologist. His main office is in Bryn Mawr. He sees quite a few FM patients and is incredibly compassionate, especially with his FM patients. He spent an HOUR and 15 minutes just talking with me on my first visit! He is not the least bit arrogant and treated me with respect and kindness.
He feels it is HIS duty to help keep his patients as comfortable as possible and to help us in every way HE can to provide us medical support AND even more importantly than all that (in my opinion) is that he treats me with the utmost dignity and respect and makes me feel validated.
He also has no problem giving you what you need to get your symptoms under control.
I feel so very fortunate that I found this doctor. Dial 411 and ask for Dr. Thomas Whalen's phone number in Bryn Mawr. They can then tell you where his other offices are (I go to the one in Exton) and take it from there.
Best of luck to you! Please let us know how you make out, okay?
Love and good health to everyone ... Robin
