Your mother does sound complicated. For this reason, I would suggest that you try to find a rheumatologist, not based on geography, but based on expertise. Usually, a university based program will be better able to serve the complicated patient best, as they tend to see more complicated cases than the rheumatologists in private practice. University of Florida and University of Alabama are programs that I would highly recommend. There are many excellent rheumatologists at each facility. YOu could get an appt for your mother with any of them. Good luck !!
