    Default Multiple Dr's?

    Just curious as to who everyone sees for their Wegener's. I have a Rheumatologist and 3 different Dr's at an Ear Nose and Throat Practice for each of those areas - Ear, Sinus and Throat. Do you all have multiple Dr's, or just see one?

    Thanks

    My rheumatologist manages the treatment of my wegs. I also have a very good PCP. In addition, I see a pulmonologist and an ENT on a regular basis. I see a nephrologist and a urologist as needed.

    My Rheumatologist manages my meds. I also see an Otolaryngologist who updates the Rheumy on my symptoms. Recently as a result of an infection over the holidays, I was also seeing an Infectious Diseases doctor. Besides those, just a family physician. I guess I'm lucky, I only have a few doctors.

    Man, how did I end up with more?! I'm not as severe as others!!! I do have Hashimoto's so there's the endo doc ... and the cancer gives me the oncologist. And ... I have a pituitary tumor and a pupil that's smaller than the other one ... hence the brain doc.
    OK, now I sound like a mess.
