I need to find a new Rheumatologist and/or SI Joint specialist.  Does anyone have suggestions on how to research and find the best one to suit my needs?  Any website suggestions?  Thanks!!

Hey CLW!

Enbrel has a website to look up a rheumy:

http://www.enbrel.com/conditions/enbrel-rheumfinder.jsp

All you have to do is type in the zip code and it will give you a listing within a certain square mile radius... Hope this helps!

Thanks Ducky/Flopsie!  I'll use both of these avenues to help in my search for a new rheumy.

and also your states local Arthritis Foundation will also guide you to a specialist. if you call 411 or look in the yellow pages, the number may be listed. it's usually an 1800 number...not sure of the national hotline number though, but i'm sure it's on the website, as are the state numbers.
