I have a lot of autoimmune things going on. Most doctors, when they hear the word "autuimmune" . . . well it seems to shut down their thought processes. I'm wondering if you know a doctor who has an open mind, and expert knowledge of autoimmune disorders, and the ability to look at the entire organism (me). Right now, I am getting different opinions from every doctor I see. I would like to be able to forward all of my labs, imaging, and history to someone who will review it thouroughly. If you know anyone, I would very much appreciate your pointing me in that direction. I live in Utah, but I am sure that I can capture my entire history on DVD, or even post it for download. Thanks.
