I agree, especially if the symptoms are confusing and consultation is needed for clarifying the diagnosis. However, once the diagnosis is made, many patients with connective tissue diseases can be managed in the primary care physician's office, in collaboration with the rheumatologist. Specialist's have very full schedules, so maintenance can be done elsewhere in the Patient-Centered Medical Home
