    Hello Poppy65,

    I looked at the Vasculitis Foundation's website https://www.vasculitisfoundation.org...l-consultants/, and it looks like your closest vasculitis docs are going to be in either Kansas City or Salt Lake City. If this is too far for you to travel, you might ask your local doc to consult with one of the docs listed here. These docs usually don't charge for a consult.

    I live in Columbus, Ohio, and you'd think I'd go to Ohio State to get my wegs treated, but I actually drive 2+ hours one-way to Cleveland Clinic to see Dr Alexandra Villa Forte. She's excellent. Others on here who go to Cleveland also speak highly of Dr Carol Langford. Mayo has a site in Phoenix.

    Good luck with your search. Hope you find a doc who knows a little about wegs (to understand how much he doesn't know) and who will work well with you, any specialists you add to your treatment team, and your health insurer.

    Thank you for the info. I appreciate it.
