"Lack of Rheumatologists in Brisbane"

(as the patient),

I made an appointment to see a Rheumatologist at the beginning of March 2014 due to having all the tell-tale symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis and blood results show a positive RF and high ESR. I believe the symptoms are growing and so is my frustration and concern that I have to wait almost 3 months before seeing a specialist so that I can find out either way (even though I am paying the full rate). I have read that having an early diagnosis and beginning treatment can make all the difference.
