Just wondering if any of you wonderful people live anywhere near the Philly area and have a rheumatologist they love? My guy is in Delaware and very nice but does not seem to be an expert in lupus. I checked the lupus.org site and he is not listed on there. My GI wants me to see someone else to try to get a clear diagnosis so we can prevent further damage. I see a list of doctors there but don't know any. I hate to go in blindly. Any recommendations if you have would be awesome.

Thanks in advance

One thing you can do is when you look at lupus.org, find the local branch. Then see who is active on they local advisory board, they are definitely lupus-aware. Also if there is a local support group visit it a couple of times and talk to people about their doctors.

Also, you might need to add an email address to your account here - we can't really recommend Drs to you by name, as that might get HW in legal trouble if something were to go wrong. Members can, however, email you suggestions if they have them.

Hope that helps a little.
