Care Philosophy

I think I can say I've witnessed a revolution. When I finished my program, standard treatment for rheumatoid arthritis was something called injectable gold. In the 1980's a product called methotrexate became very popular. Around 1999 a whole group of...

I am sure the guy is knowledgeable but when he saw that I had nothing auto immune going on he was dismissive and rude. I asked him why I was in so much pain and he shrugged and said he had no answers for me. I went instead to a physical medicine doctor who diagnosed me with Ehlers Danlos and found some good treatment options. Bedside manner, it's actually a thing.
