    All the Rheumatologists in my area have waitlists that are 5+ months. I have had great success getting appointments by putting my name on the cancellation list. You have to be really flexible with the time of the appointment, but eventually you will get an earlier appointment. Most recently, I was trying to get a colonoscopy scheduled and was told that they were scheduling out in December. 😬 I got on the cancellation list and got called later that day with an appointment this week.
