Question Looking for doctor in philadelphia area

I was very recently diagnosed with RSD after a foot fracture.
and was told to contact a neurologist, physiatrist or anaesthesiologist. I need to know, from your experience, what is the best route to take and if you can give me some names of doctors. From what I have read, it is best to start treatment early and am very anxious to do this.
I called to make an appointment with Dr. Schwartsman and was told there is a two year wait.
Thanks

Re: Looking for doctor in philadelphia area

Hi there -- welcome! What a crazy waiting list! I don't have a specific name, but I would call a couple of the larger university medical centers (UPenn, Temple, Drexel) to get into their pain management programs. I've found that the most knowledgeable doctors are in those groups.
