Hi everyone,
I'm new to the site and msg board! I'm 31 years old and I was diagnosed with Discoid Lupus just 6 months ago when I was moving to NYC with my husband and son. I'm currently on Planequil and I keep in touch with my Reumy from back home but I'm looking for a Dermatologist in the city to check my skin every once in a while and call in case of emergencies or sudden out-bursts in my scalp. 
I've found 3 Dermatologists who specialise in Discoid Lupus in the area through google: Dr. Femia, who is on maternity leave; Dr. Neimann, who isnĀ“t taking new patients; and Dr. Andrews, who doesn't work with my medical health plan (Aetna) and the cost for a consult is too high for my budget. 
Can anybody please recommend a specialist?
Thank you everyone!!

Hi! I'm new here also. I have tumid lupus. I went to Dr. Joanna Harp. She's the only one who finally figured out what I have. You could try her. She's with Weill Cornell.

Hi also new here and also in NY, still no concrete diagnosis but I might have discoid lupus (neg ANA so no SLE I guess).

Has anyone tried NYU Lupus Center?

I did see Dr. Joanna Harp at Weill Cornell. She is very nice and specializes in dermatology related to autoimmune issues/connective tissue disorders. I'd definitely recommend her!
