My GP diagnosed mine and then sent me to a Rheumatologist.

Rheumatologist and dermatopathologist (= dermatologist/pathologist, does his own labwork). Post more if you want to, OK? Best wishes, Vee

Re: what doctor do i need to see for a diagnosis of lupus?

You need to see a board certified Rheumatologist, preferebly one that deals with Lupus big time. I got diagnosed by a GP and he immediately sent me to a Rheumatologist as the GP would not accept me as a patient. My Rheumatologist is a very good doctor. I have Lupus SLE and have had it since the age of 5. I am now 51. Good luck.
