    Hi, I live in the middle Tennesse area, not far from Nashiville. My doctor is in Lebanon. I have been very pleased with him.

    Someone on this board used to go to someone they really liked in Nashville. Sorry I don't remember her name or the doctor's name. Perhaps she will reply if you keep this bumped.

    Too far for me. I work in Nashville and usually go during my lunch to doc appointments. Thanks and I did remember seeing something a while back but also forgot who it was!

    Frustatedandtired,

    I just saw your post after doing a Nashville search. If you haven't had any additional responses, the doctor I see is Dr. David Knapp at Arthritis Specialists (affiliated with Centennial). I work at Vanderbilt and was referred to him by Dr. Bobo Tanner who is a rheumatologist but actually specializes and runs the ASAP Clinic for Vandy. I happened to be seeing him at the time that I was told I needed to see a rheumatologist. Dr. Knapp is a nice guy and his NP is wonderful. To be referred to another hospital by a Vandy physician is odd (and not the first time for me), but Dr. Tanner said that Dr. Knapp was the FM doctor in Nashville.

    We all know that there isn't a lot that our doctor's can do, but between Dr. Knapp and my PCP, they have really helped me. They correspond with each other regarding my appointments so I know that they each know what's going on with me. I'm not great, but I'm much better than I was two years ago.

    Best Wishes!
    Pam
