A local gout rheumatologist (or “Rheumy”) is best for difficult cases of gout. Because your family doctor is usually best to help you recover from gout. But, there are situations where your doctor might need to refer you to a Rheumy if your case is complex. So, I have created this directory to help certain gout people:

Gout Rheumatologist Directory Notes

I made GoutPal’s Rheumy directory from:

  • Local searches for adult Rheumies.
  • Professional Rheumy organizations members.
  • Published medical research.
  • Gout forum member’s experiences.

Firstly, note that I’ve mostly compiled this directory from public information. So, Rheumies referred to below might not continue to work for institutions. However, clinics with a history of gout care normally continue gout services when staff change.

Secondly, I have not asked these Rheumies about their gout services. So, they might not provide the public services you want. In that case, please let me know so I can correct the list.

Your Local Gout Rheumatologist Directory

Before I finish, I hope you can help me improve my directory. So, if you would like me to investigate Rheumies in your area, tell me your city:

[Admin: This project is on hold pending completion of website maintenance program. If you want to contribute to this directory please join the gout forum. This applies to requests from gout sufferers and rheumatologists who want to add their contact details.]

Also, have you used a Rheumy to help your gout? Then please share your experience in the gout forum.
