Does anyone know how much it costs to be examined by a rhuematologist? I belong to an HMO and I am not having any success with my Dr. he blames my symptoms on one thing or another mainly stress. I have to be referred to a specialist. I thought I would go to a rheumatologist on my own and bring his findings to my Dr. I found one in my area but I am just curious about the cost. Please let me know if you know. Thanks.
