I have a friend who lives in New York City and another in North Jersey but I am not sure what kind of doctor your looking for. Do you need a Rheumatologist, Neurologist, Hematologist???? Does your daughter have Lupus or any other auto immune diseases that may be more specific for a certain type of doctor?
I will get in touch with some friends to get you names but can you give me a little more information as to what your looking for.
There is also the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan with a specialised Lupus Centre under Dr Michael Lockshin. I think NYUMC would also be good and I have heard good things of Sinai and Columbia. The ACR site has a list of rheumatologists by area with their specialities. The SLE Foundation in Manhattan would advise too as would the NJ Chapter of the Lupus Foundation of America. I think that Dr Robert Lahita who's a very well known lupus specialist is in NJ at the Robert Woods Johnson Hospital ( ?)
St Luke's Roosevelt used to have a lupus team but I am not sure if it's still there as several of them moved to OK.
