    I have concern about having a GP manage cases. My GP always warns me off of the biological meds, he has no experience with them and is convinced they will cause cancer. When you are getting new “state of the art” treatments a GP just isn’t up to speed for rheumatology. A rheumatologist who has hundreds of patients on these medications isn’t afraid of them, they embrace them. In fact, my GP had never even heard of the type of RA I have – he asked me what it was after I got my diagnosis.

      I agree. My GP is a wonderful person who is responsive to various other needs I have had, but does not know about these RA issues or RA medicines & I’ve taught him a lot about it. I needed to try several rheum specialists to find one that I thought was sharp & on top of things & didn’t tell me anything that I knew to be false. Soooo, I’ll personally always want the smartest specialist I can find.

      You know what ? Come to think of it, I’ve gone “around” the pediatrician to get things my kids have needed from a specialist dozens of times – glasses, hearing aids, surgeries… It doesn’t seem like it has patients’ best interests at the center of it. Kind of like the HMO where the gatekeeper decides what care you get. I will fight to be my own gatekeeper from now on.
