Are You Seeing The Right Doc?

A study from UCLA confirms that seeing a specialist is the gold-standard strategy for treating rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

A no-brainer? Not by a long shot. The researchers found that half of the 1,355 study participants did not receive care from a rheumatologist, even though all had health insurance that did not restrict access to specialists.

About 75% of the time, rheumatologists provided the level of care recommended by the American College of Rheumatology, such as annual doctor visits, blood tests, and drug monitoring. People who did not have a rheumatologist as part of their health care team received that level of care just 50%% of the time, says study author Catherine MacLean, MD, PhD, assistant professor of medicine at the UCLA Division of Rheumatology.

Follow these steps to get the best care:

Call the right doc. If you have pain and swelling in three or more joints, see a rheumatologist to find out which type of arthritis you have. RA affects about 1 in every 100 adults in the US. Left untreated, RA can permanently damage joints in just 1 year.

Add a specialist to your team. If you already have RA, consult a rheumatologist even if you're under the treatment of your family doc. The specialist may confirm that your primary care physician is providing high-quality care-but since the stakes are high, it's worth getting a second opinion.

Phone your family doctor too.Researchers also found that people with RA often have other health conditions that are not well managed—conditions that can shorten your life span by 5 to 15 years. Your best defense: Be your own health advocate—and talk to your primary care physician about watching out for other conditions.
