    Hi, I am from Buckeye Lake area.... If you do find a good one please let me know.. There is a woman Dr in Lancaster, but hear she only believes in aerobics.. I don't know about you, but I think if she had it, she would feel a little different..
    Thanks and good luck

    but can't remember his name. I'm from Northern Kentucky and drove to Columbus to see him. This has been quite a few years ago. I just decided it was too far to keep driving to see a doctor.

    Look in the Columbus yellow pages and find one of the rheumatologists associated with University Hospital or Riverside and make an appointment with them. The one I went to was associated with OSU--I think his name might have been Hackshaw.

    I go to a rheumy in Kentucky now--I'm just not able to drive very far and have to keep my doctors close by now!

    Good luck.
