Frustrating first rheum

Barely felt listened to. He gave me the same blank stare as I've had for years despite the fact my history almost ticks off the criteria list for SLe. Refused to even give a provisional diagnosis, requested more blood tests.

Please can someone suggest (even if by private message) a good rheumatology in Cambridge who doesn't just go by bloods and is open to zero negative diagnosis and is holistic and listens to your history and supportive?? Thank you!

I've found that my Rheumy seems to go by blood tests. I can talk & it comes down to blood tests. That is how mine diagnoses. I still don't have a firm diagnoses but am glad he is not guessing (sometimes 😄).
