In Sept. 2008, CreakyJoints produced a FREE event for RA patients and their loved ones, in which they learned tips for healthier living, asked rheumatologist Dr. Stephen Paget (of New York's Hospital for Special Surgery) any question on their minds, enjoyed a free meal, and met our own Seth and Dr. Laurie.
I feel like my rheumatologist is not listening to my concerns -- he's so determined to quickly get me in and out of the office, we barely cover any of my concerns. I have expressed this to him, but without any change. What do I do? -- Nancy in New York
