Thanks, jtmak. I'll forward this on to her. She has worked at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center right off I-10 for nearly 30 years. Nobody there has been able to help her, though she has classic signs of psoriatic arthritis. This doc Tremazi is relatively new in their system, and some of her co-workers have said he's pretty good. It's a real struggle for her at age 64 to work full time with zero treatment. I wish she would go to USC, and maybe she will if this new guy is clueless. You suffered 30 years without answers, so you know the struggle is real. I'm glad you have options now and hopefully a treatment plan that gives you many good days ahead.
