I do have 2 appointments with Rheumy doctors next week but saw this thread and thought I would ask anyway.

Does anyone know of any good docs here in Jersey that specialize in Lupus?

I am the type of person that will go for 3-4 opinions before I accept a diagnoses of anything.:lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

Hello Karol

This might be a useful lead : Dr Lahita is one of the best known lupologists in the USA

"expert Dr. Robert Lahita. Dr. Lahita M.D., Ph. D. is a Professor of Medicine at Mount Sinai Medical School and Chairman of Medicine at the Jersey City Medical Center in Jersey City, N. J. He is currently a senior attending physician at the Jersey City Medical Center and a Senior Attending Physician at Saint Vincent’s Medical Center. Dr. Lahita has served on numerous committees with several organizations, including on the Lupus Foundation of America's Medical Scientific Advisory Council."

The American College of Rheumatology site has a geographical list of rheumatologists with their specialities.

We have a few members in NJ who might come along with personal recommendations

Good Luck! :) I hope you don't have to go through too many of them!

I've see a lot of docs in NJ for my lupus over the past 3 years (10 I think, though some have been in NYC and the Philly area, and some were more natural docs, not rheumys...)

Anyway, I'm currently seeing Dr. Arthur Brawer in Long Branch, NJ. I would not consider him a lupus specialist, though he is very knowlegeable about lupus. I really like this doc, I feel he offers a great balance of medical expertise coupled with a great attitude and bedside manner.

Please PM me if you have other questions!
