Word of mouth...: Selecting a good rheumatologist is difficult; try to go be word of mouht, referral from someone you know that uses that doctor; or you can contact your local medical society and let them direct you. Also; if there is a major teaching hospital in your area try to choose the doctor affiliated with that institution. Best of luck!
