Yes: Several doctors will likely help take care of a lupus patient: a primary care doctor to coordinate referrals to specialists, and to take care of non-lupus issues; a rheumatologist to take care of general lupus problems; and then other specialists to help take care of problems with certain organ systems (such as nephrologists to treat kidney failure, or ophthalmologists to treat eye problems).
