Good Rheumatologists In My Area

I recently began seeing a rheumatologist in Battle Creek, MI, Dr. Ingrid Hall. I have previously been a patient of U of M, and a Kalamazoo rheumatologist.

I have been VERY impressed with Dr. Hall. She has been extremely thorough and actually called me to share some test results. She spends as much time as you need, and has answered many of my questions. I would very highly recommend her, but be advised that it may take a month or two to see her for your initial appointment. I wish you the best of luck in finding someone you trust and respect.

I go to the U of Mn for my rheumatologist, so I as well recommend a good teaching hospital or clinic if you don't already have one you like and feel like you are not being truly heard.

Welcome to the site...and I am so sorry your doctor treated you that way. I also had have fibro for nine years, but my specialist said there was something suspicious in blood work and appearance. It took two years until RA reared its ugly head enough for the specific diagnosis. Hopefully you can find a dr that listens to you....
