Is any one here from NV?? I have a rhumey here and she is okay.. but she has so many patients im pretty sure she does not remember me..  I think she is the only one.. she flies in from California actually. Las Vegas is in need of rhuemys. but If anyone can help that would be wonderful. We just want to try another doctor for further reference.

Hey Big!!

There is a link at the end of my signature titled "Lupus Chapter Locater". If you click on that link and find your nearest Lupus Foundation Chapter, you can call, email or write to them and they will send or email a copy of Dr. referrals in your area.

I would also suggest going to a local chapter support group, if there is one in your area, to talk to local members who can give you the good, the bad and the ugly about local doctors.

Hopefully, some of the members here will have a tip for your area as well. If there is a long waiting list (often a couple months or more), make sure to ask to be put on the "cancellation list". Sometimes if they know you can take a last minute appointment when others cancel, you can get in much faster.

Good luck finding a new rheumy!!
