TMA’s Find a Doctor tool, offered through a partnership with MediFind, is a great place to start your search for a physician with experience in treating the different types of myositis.

To get started, enter your condition and the city/town where you live. You can adjust the radius to give you a larger list of providers to choose from.

Look for the doctor’s expertise tier: elite (the most expert), distinguished, advanced, and experienced (the least expert). Be aware that because myositis is a rare disease, you won’t find an elite expert in every city or town. In many places, you may only find a doctor who is “experienced.”

TMA’s most elite experts are also designated as “Recognized by TMA.”

    Hello ,
    I have been diagnosed with MCTD . It has turned into Dermatomyositis, but I need a muscle biopsy to confirm. My Rheumatologist has not been helpful . Is there anyone in Boise , Idaho specialized in Myositis who could perform a muscle biopsy . Or in Seattle or Salt Lake City ?
