View Full Version : 2nd Opinion tomorrow

02-08-2009, 09:47 AM
Well after not feeling like I was getting answers I needed I did decide to get a 2nd opinion and it is tomorrow. I searched for the best and this is who I found:
Bonnie Lee Bermas, M.D.Director, Center for Lupus and Antiphospholipid Antibody
Clinical Interests:
antiphospholipid antibody syndrome
pregnancy and rheumatic diseases
systemic rheumatic diseases

She seems pretty knowledgeable and I hope I get at least a better understanding of what is going on whether or not it is a diagnosis or not. I will tell all of you about it tomorrow. I am taking girlindallas advice about the outline for the doctor. Lets hope this goes well..Hubby is trying to get off work to go with me too..I hope he can so he can understand better too--although he has been my ROCK!

Well good luck and lets hope you get some real answers. Get your list of symptoms ready too. So nice if your husband can be with you, its nice he is supportive and understanding. I'll be thinking of you.

I am keeping you in my prayers!

I have looked her up and I think she is who I need to see as well. It is only 1.5 hours drive for me and I will be calling in the morning for an appointment.

I had no idea they had a center like that down there!

Thanks for sharing this.

Yes I was happy, I new Boston is know for some of the best doctors and hospitals in the U.S. so I did Google searches and found her. When I told my PCP he said B&W is one of the most renowned Rheumy hospitals in the U.S.
