Dr. Mitchell Cohn

Osteopathic Doctor: Your complex issues should be addressed both separately & as a unit. Chronic disorders often cause depression. All ailments & your physical & emotional response to them should be addressed. Most drs. Might recommend a rheumatologist & psych. A good do interested in chronic pain & manipulation might be a better choice; they look at the whole person & the elbow/finger pain might be of spinal origin.
Dr. Catherine Lanteri

Primary Care: Start with your primary care. They can look at your symptoms from the perspective of your complete health. They could then refer you to a specialist they trust if you need additional care.
