I am so fortunate to have Dr. Bauer. She explains her reasoning simply and kindly. She always listens to me and I know she genuinely cares. From what I hear from other folks with autoimmune conditions, these are rare qualities in a rheumatologist. I only wish she had more time in her schedule.

I thought there would be a follow up call of what I need to do next. The ending conversation was - "follow up w/your regular doctor" but he sent me here because no one can figure my symptoms out. I don't know what to do and have no concrete answer.
