ANA positive. AntiDNA 12, ANA 1:16. See which specialist?

Hi. I had bloodwork done in December and it came back ANA+ Anti DsDNA was 12 and ANA titer was 1:16; my gynecologist was very alarmed and said I need to see a Rheumatologst but my endocrinologist (I have Hashimoto s) said it was no big deal. I ve been tested for Lupus and Rheumatoid arthritis in the past; both came back negative.
