I was a bit apprehensive about moving house and one of the big concerns was what would my new health professionals be like. I've been spoilt, for all my arthritic years, with great GPs and consultants.
Well, the new GPs, phlebos and podiatrist have proved very good. Today it was the rheumatologist and I'm delighted to report he was kind, exceptionally thorough (I can't remember when my hands and feet were last x-rayed or when anyone last asked about my original diagnosis of Stills or which meds I'd been on in what order), friendly and good for a laugh. He offered Occy Health (“Though you probably know as much about your needs as they do.” I agreed :oops: and politely refused) and a physio appointment which I accepted as we all get lax and need a refresher course from time to time.
So, a very good appointment and the purpose of this thread is to reassure anyone who is obliged to change docs and rheumatologists. Sometimes these things work out really well. Mine is doing. Orthotist on Friday. Bring him on
