    Default Who and Where Is Your Doctor

    Since we know we all have to stick together I am hoping that everyone will participate in this. Some of you have really great doctors and I know I want to know who these doctors are. I would love it if you would reply and let me know the name of your doctor and where they are located. Tgal says she will make it a sticky for us. (Thanks Tgal) I am hoping I find somebody wonderful and I hope you do too.

    I am seeing Dr. George DeLeon in Pearland, Texas for pain management at this time. I am in the process of finding a new rheumatologist.

    Can't wait to hear from you.

    Great idea.

    I see Dr. Nancy Keesal in Toronto. She's extremely thorough and I like her. She's all business though with no time for chit chat.

    Hey Melanie,

    Great thread. I am going to make it a sticky so it stays at the top of the page. That way it won't get lost and everyone (hopefully) can join in! Maybe people can find good doctors that are close to them.

    This is a great thread:
    Dr. Emily Pineda in San Antonio, Tx. is outstanding. Her practice is so in demand, it's difficult to get an appointment, but she's worth the wait.
    Dr. Blake Simpson in SA is a great otolaryngologist. His buddy Dr. Mark Coury, who I'm seeing in San Francisco is very good, too.
    Dr. Michelle Anson in SA is the best PCP I've ever had.
    Hugs,
    Marla

    Mine probably won't be of much help, since it's at a pediatrics hospital- but I see Dr. Peter Chira - Rheumatologist from Riley Childrens Hospital, in Indianapolis, Indiana. He's actually done a few interviews for the Lupus Foundation of America, on preparing for school with Lupus

    Awesome thread, Melanie! I can't wait to tell my doc he's in the WHL Hall of Fame.

    My SuperRheumy is Dr. Mark Box at KC Internal Medicine. He's in Overland Park, KS, which is right next to Kansas City. The man's a genius, and I would never be flare-free without his samples. Plus his office always has two choices of naturally flavored waters. Have you ever sliced up a cucumber into ice water? Delicious. : )

    I see Dr. Jennifer Huggins and Dr. Lou at Childrens Hospital in Cincinnati. While I've had issues with Huggins, both are good doctors, and Huggins does adult rheumatology as well as pediatric. Me and my friend both love Lou for anyone who needs a pediatric rheumatologist lol
