Hi sweetie, I'm sorry you wern't able to get a response. I do know that things have been a little slower than usual around here. I'm guessing the weather and holiday may have something to do with it. I live in oklahoma so I wouldn't know of anyone where you are but this site might help you. You'll have to look around it a little but you should be able to get some answers about doctors and what others have to say aboiut them in your area. Many of us have used this site. it takes a little to get the hang of it but I am sure you wil find some answers.
here is the link
try this link first it will get you closer to what your looking for
you can find what ever kind of doctor you are looking for and what others think of them. If it doesn't help please let us know and maybe we can help more. Also if you look in the yellow pages for your area on the computer they usually have some personal info on doctors. I know it's difficult. It took me 4 months to get into a rheumy just to find out he was worthless in the end. So I'm back to trying to find a new one.

KaAl,Even getting a referral from someone here could leave you with a disappointing doctors visit. I received a referral from a lady in our car club who has lupus, swore by this doctor that he was fantastic ... so I make an appointment, he looks me in the face and tells me it's all in my head. Received a second referral from my doctor where I use to live by this dr who is head of the department at University of Vanderbilt. He says you don't have lupus, you have fibromyalgia, do you want to go on my study? Two referrals, two disappointing doctor visits. Third referral, don't go to Dr. R ... after three years I have no choice, he's my last choice. I go to Dr. R ... he listens, he cares, he tells me I have lupus and he is very concerned about my labs, wants to see me every 3-4 weeks. Go figure, the one dr I was told to stay away from turns out to be fantastic.
We all go to many doctors before we find "that perfect doctor" ... and you'll probably end up having to do the same. Sorry. :(
