Choosing Your San Antonio Vasculitis Specialist
It's not easy selecting the right doctor who will take the time to understand your particular needs so that they can better help you understand your condition and its treatment. So it is imperative that you ask the right questions:
- Does your specialist have first-hand experience at serving those most affected by Vasculitis?
- Is your specialist recognized and respected by her peers as an active patient advocate?
- Is your specialist board certified in both Rheumatology and Internal Medicine?
