    I am in the Columbus, Ohio area and need to find a good DR that is experienced with fibro. Would prefer someone in the Columbus area since driving is somewhat difficult for me.

    Thanks :)

    because the one I was seeing moved!

    I do have a couple of suggestions though.

    1) Try calling Ohio State's rhumetology (sp?) dept. and ask if they could recommend anyone.

    2) If you have insurance, call the OhioHeatlh group or the Mt. Carmel group (depending on what group your insurance is good for) and ask for the doctor referral line. Tell the person what you're looking for and see if they can give you a couple names.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the list. I saw this Dr. Ralph Gustafson, D.C.
    (Note: Dr. Gustafson is self-referred to the list.) but I do not know what the D C stands for and he is self-referred. I was hoping to find a fellow FM'r in the Columbus, OH area that could refer a good Dr. I don't have anyone to help me and I don't know if I could handle the 2 hour drive to Cincy or Canton to see a Dr. I will have to wait until we are past the "winter" weather to go out of town. I see there is one at OSU. Perhaps I will try him. I have to do something.

    My doctor is a D. O. and practices environmental medicine. He is my doctor and quite good. Located in Norwalk, Ohio.

    HI, his name is Dr. Resseger, he's a very good doctor and nice staff. I've been going to him for 20 years. Give him a try.

    I have seen Dr. Kevin Hackshaw a few times, years ago, after being first diagnosed.

    I really liked him, but I had to drive from Kentucky, and eventually found a doctor closer to my home.

    Thank you very much. He is much closer for me. I cannot rely on anyone to help me and driving is difficult. I will have to see if he is under my insurance ;-)
