Hey, I hope to get some input about doctors in the New Orleans area. I am new here and don't know anyone. It is hard to change doctors after a 12 year relationship but I cannot travel 500 miles every time I need to go.You feel alone anyway with this illness. You really start to trust your doctor if you have a good one. I would really like to here back from some people that understand .

Hi Pam and welcome,

I expect others here really do understand and hope they'll give you some ideas to try.

You should know that specific recommendations cannot be made here on the board. But you may want to start looking by contacting your local Arthritis Society.
