Working With Your Rheumatologist

Music track and RINVOQ logo throughout.

CARYN: I love my rheumatologist.

We just had lots of conversations about my symptoms, where I was, how I was feeling, what was hurting, what was not hurting, fatigue.

LYNN: There were a lot of things my rheumatologist was looking for.

She would put a lot of weight into what I told her as to how I felt, what I could accomplish, how bad the fatigue, pain. All of that went into making a decision.

JORDIN: My rheumatologist, she’s great.

She voiced understanding when I would tell her how I felt, understanding of the activities that are important to me, and the goals that I would have being well-managed.

That’s where we kind of clicked and I knew that she was the right one for me.

CARYN: I would highly recommend finding someone that’s going to fight for you, and just find the right one that you click with and you feel good with.
