Hi everyone; just wanted to see if anyone has a good rheumy in Roanoke Va or Charleston WV areas. I live in the middle of the 2 cities so either way is OK for me. I need one compassionate to what we go through but also knowledgeable in treatment options.
I was diagnosed back in 1987 so I've seen a lot of different doctors over the years. I'm going to University of Virginia right now but it's about 4 hours away and when I do have troubles; it's a long ways away for my Dr. I've been having lots of problems since last spring when I had a kidney infection and the Lupus seems to be running amuck since then. I was on Imuran several years ago with great results but when I bring this up to my UVA dr. she kind brushes it off and gives me more pain pills. I'd like to try it again or even methotrexate. Try something anyway. I'm already on Plaquenil and it helps but I need some sort of treatment plan.
Anyone got any good doctors out there in my area?
Thanks so much in advance.
