I scheduled in April, and the appointment was originally September... Part of the reason for a new patient appt being so far out is the task of gathering all your medical files. My new rheumy had like a two inch thick file on me when he came in the room for my appt, and he had actually read at least some of it, and studied it, and based on my previous lab work done over the last few years, after a physical exam, said "it can only be sle"... Finally, after 20+ years of this that and the other diagnoses... Just be ready in case they call you for a cancellation, which is how I got in a few weeks ago... tic - Don't forget to write notes to take with you!
