WHO CAN I TALK TO
If you have a lifelong condition like rheumatoid arthritis or plaque psoriasis, it’s important to see a doctor who is an expert in that field. Your family doctor can refer you to a specialist known as a rheumatologist or dermatologist who:
- Has advanced knowledge of your condition
- Sees many people who have symptoms of your condition
- Can help make sure you’re getting the medicine that’s best for you
Questions to ask
If you have moderate to severe symptoms, you may have a lot of questions. Your specialist can help you find answers. Prepare for your visit by downloading an appointment guide.
