Need Assistance Finding an Excellent Rheumatologist in Boston

4 posts in this topic

Hi folks,


I hope this message finds everyone well. After some thought, I've decided I need to get a second opinion on what's been occurring with me. I'm hoping some folks on the forum can direct me to the best Rheumatologist in Boston...someone who is very familiar with Scleroderma and MCTD. Thanks in advance.


P.S. A big and warm thanks to all for your kindness and support as I seek a diagnosis. I will keep you posted!
