I think of Stefanie, my rheumatoid arthritis coach, as a lighthouse in a blustery storm. My world was turned upside down when I was struck with unexplained knee pain that later progressed to my ankles and feet. I was so impacted by this experience that like most went from doctor to doctor until finally receiving a diagnosis of early onset rheumatoid arthritis. However, that was just the beginning of understanding this condition and learning how to treat it, let alone accepting what I was being told. Most providers spent a brief amount of time with me, sent me on my way with a handful of scary prescriptions and a note that they would see me in three months. When I found Stefanie online I was struck by her professionalism, her medical degree (NP-C), personal history with rheumatoid arthritis, her extensive medical experience in family medicine and the comprehensive nature of her services. Not only does she work with you psychologically, but Stefanie provides a comprehensive review of medical records, advocacy with your medical providers, and a set of fresh clinical eyes to make suggestions where warranted. She is a light in the storm of rheumatoid arthritis. I highly recommend her for anyone on their RA journey!
