Overview

Notepad and pen that says, I would like a second opinion for my patientAll scleroderma patients should be seen by a listed scleroderma expert, at the earliest opportunity, to assure proper diagnosis, adequate screening, optimum treatment, and access to clinical trials.

Because it is so rare, the usual rheumatologist may see only one or two cases of scleroderma in their entire career. The usual process is for suspected cases to be referred to a scleroderma center for diagnosis and management or co-management of ongoing care.
