I could really use your help. I was diagnosed in 2013 and have gone to two doctors. I really am looking for a rheumy that listens to me. Thanks so much.

I'm not sure off hand who is out there.

Christine would have likely heard of good rheums.: http://www.spondylitis.org/Community/Support-Groups/Stamford

also there are a dozen listed in the member referral directory: http://www.spondylitis.org/Rheumatologist-Directory

Hope that helps.

I go to Hospital for Special Surgery in NYC. Parts of Connecticut have an easy train ride to there??? The hour and a half commute is worth it for me.

Yes, Hospital for Special Surgery has many really good rheumys so you don't have to wait months for an appointment and they cover a lot of different insurances. Just saw in a commercial that they have an office in CN.
