rheumatologist?

Can't Post | Private Reply
As I understand it, there IS no rheumatologist in PV, a city of 250,000...go figure. I can get a referral to a doc in Tepic or Guad, neither one convenient for me at this time of year. Anyone have any other suggestions, maybe your doc is treating your arthritis even tho it's not his specialty? MY RA is flaring more and more frequently and I need help. Thanks....

Camille, I recommend that you contact Pamela Thompson from HealthCare Resources in PV. She will likely have answers to all your questions, and she can refer you to a qualified specialist if there is one in the area. The website is: http://healthcareresourcespv.com/

I just Googled "rheumotologists in Puerto Vallarta" and a few sites popped up. May be worth looking through them...

Neither of those websites mention any specific doctors in Vallarta. Good luck Camille.

Sorry, that's all I could find online. Pam is truly the best resource here.
