Life is changing fast for me. I am looking into a move to Texas. The Lubbock area but I am not sure how that area will help or hurt my sclero. If anyone has any words of wisdom or knows of good doctors in that area I would love to hear from you.
Hugs,

Hi, Patty!
I know a really great doctor in Fort Worth, TX but I don't know about Lubbock. That would be a five or six-hour trip by car, but might be worth it if you can't find someone good in Lubbock. My doctor's name is Dr. Emily Isaacs and she consults with Dr. Maureen Mayes in Houston. Dr. Mayes is a really top expert in the field, so I feel I am getting the best care possible!

Patty,
I found a couple of things on our scleroderma specialist page.

Scleroderma Specialist in Texas

Rheumatologists in Lubbock

Mary mentioned Dr. Maureen Mayes in Houston. I've always thought about making an appointment to see her just for a consult. She wrote the best book on scleroderma, so she must be good.

Hi, Janey!
I have a book written by her and it is really good. Has she written more than one, I wonder?

Janey ans Mary,


Thanks for the replies on this. I am planning on going down to Texas soon to check out the hospitals and Dr's and also see how I feel with the change to the south west from the north east. Part of me wants to go ASAP and another part feels selfish spending so much money when it can go to holiday so I really don't know when I will go but I want as much info I can get before I get there. I hope to get in to meet a few of the Dr's to see who I click with. I also need to make sure that Gia will be OK down there with her asthma. Lots to think about when thinking of moving to another state so different from Connecticut.


Mary I heard that Dr Mayes has written 2 books. I just read her first one and was told that she had a newer book out with more up to date info.
Hugs,
Patty
