How can I tell if my doctor will be the right one to treat me?

Finding a new doctor

Check with the Fibromyalgia Network – a good organization to belong to anyway – and they will send you a list of doctors in your area recommended by other people with fibro. You may also have a physician's reference organization in your area. Call them. While you are on the line, ask for references for a rheumatologist or a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist.
