    is anyone near Columbus Ohio and knows a good doctor to go to? My rheumatologist isn’t helping with my pain, or suggesting much. Anyone out there that has a really good doctor?

    Hi Dars,
    Sorry to hear that things are not going well with your rheumatologist. Good doctors are hard to come by these days and they rarely have time to really listen to you during your appointment. Have you tried making a list of symptoms and questions before you go in? I know I forget what I want to say when I go in if I didn’t bring a list. Try that first, before reaching out for another doctor. It’s hard to start new doctor/patient relationships, but sometimes you need to. Sorry I can’t be of more help. I’m on the western side of the country. Take care and peace.

    Hi Dar, I am new to this site but lived in Columbus, Ohio for 38 years. There is the Columbus Arthritis Center there and a great doc is Dr. Susan Thompson, she is terrific. Hope she can help you with your pain !

    Hi Dars, Have you checked out The Cleveland Clinic? I know it is not convenient but it is one of the best in the world. I saw 3 rheumys in Columbus and didn't like any of them. I never consulted them for Lupus. I had surgery at The Cleveland Clinic for spinal stenosis and I recovered quickly.

    The best of luck.
