Please FIND A DIFFERENT Dr. I had bloodwork that specified critical antibodies in Nov 2016. My Primary Care is also associated with Carolina Health Specialist as is Dr. Conaway. It took 4 months to get my Appoint in Feb 2017, Confirmed for no known reason they canceled my Appoint. Did not seem to care. Unhappily Rescheduled for April 2017. Confirmed and guess what they CANCELLED AGAIN! Six months and no Appoint. UNBELIEVABLE!!! A good Rheumatologist is tough to find. Beware of this one!
