You have the right to expect and demand a rheumatologist who will listen to you, care about you and your symptoms, and who is dedicated to helping you. Therefore, it might be helpful to make a list of your questions and concerns and interview the doctor. Letting him/her know that you are knowledgeable about the disease and how it affects you and that you want a doctor who will listen to you and help you. Not one who will dismiss you, dismiss you symptoms, or not take you seriously. Ask him/her if he feels that he can do that for you? If he/she says yes, then hold them to it. If you don't like their answer - or they don't like your questions- find another doctor!
I wish you the best of luck.
Peace and Blessings
Look For The Good and Praise It!
