Does anyone know of a Rheumy that specializes in Lupus in the Phoenix area? I'm willing to drive 3 hours into Phoenix to go see one. We only have one and I don't believe he specializes in Lupus.
Thanks!

Re: Arizona Doctor

Hi. I'm not anywhere near you, so these are general thoughts... Are there any teaching hospitals within your range? I've done much better seeing a rheumie affiliated with such a hospital. I made calls in advance to ask if each practice had a lot of lupus patients, with varying kinds & severity of lupus, etc. I also figured that a larger-city practice would be more likely to see the full range.

Also, hospitals often have #'s you can call to ask who the specialists in your area are. Ditto with local support groups.

But that's NOT to say one can't do well right down the block if your symptoms match up well with your rheumie's expertise!

Wish I had something more specific to offer. Good luck! Sincerely, Vee
