Good luck Dutchessbek! I've got to find a PCP & rheumy doc too. I just changed my GI doc. Seems like there are a lot retiring out. Hugs & prayers you'll find a really good one! 🙂💕🙏🌼

I live in Michigan and I'm on my 2nd Rheumatologist and the hospital here bought our all the other options, but theirs. Not to mention, once the docs do their residency they leave. The 1st doc and I had a SEVERE language barrier and he literally told me he didn't care about the pain I'm in everyday ( the past 4 days with an 8/9 level). The new doc told me to take Motrin. If that had worked I wouldn't be there. My insurance won't cover the only one meds he will try and I told him I had an very bad allergic reaction to the one the 1st doc gave me that's similar. Good luck to u DutchessBek, I can completely relate!
