Where do you go for gout diagnosis?

You might think that any qualified doctor could tell if you have gout, but even your doctor is not sure.

In a recent survey of different types of physicians, only rheumatologists are 100% certain that they can diagnose gout.

This supports my advice that you should always consult a rheumatologist if you have gout, or show any gout symptoms.

The gout diagnosis information is part of a large survey into many aspects of “Leg Disorders: Patient Behavior & Physician Effectiveness”. You can read the full report at legdisorders.org.

I will extract some more data relevant to gout patients. In the meantime, please feel free to discuss your experience of gout care in the gout diagnosis forum.
