Toronto Psoraitic Arthritis clinic

Has anyone travelled to Canada to go to the clinic that specializes in PsA? My doctor and I are out of ideas for me (drug wise) so I was considering looking into it. Any and all insight will be appreciated.

I have had PA and P for 40 years and I have never known about that place. I looked it up and read all about it. I think EVERYONE should go there! I wish I could! Good luck to you - you should definately go there. Please tell us all about it after.

There is a Lupus & Psoriatic Clinic in the Toronto Western Hospital doing much treatment and research on the topics. I have been part of their study group for several years, to my benefit!
