Re: Find a UCTD Doctor
Hi. Here are some general thoughts, as I live in a different area.
Are there any groups (support groups & the like) in your area? People there might be able to recommend specific names. Also, in my area, some hospitals have phone referral services, which may or may not be "pot-luck" (I've heard varying opinions from people who've tried that approach).
Or, are there teaching hospitals in your area? You could call some of the rheumatology practices affiliated with those; and ask the office managers if they see UCTD patients, what diseases (if any) within rheumatology they have a special interest in, etc. Good luck! Vee
