Thank God for excellent doctors like Dr. Olek. I was misdiagnosed with MS shortly after moving to the Spokane area in 2005. I was referred by Dr Olek to a Rheumatologist in Nov. 2009, and diagnosed with Spondyloarthropathy, a rare type of arthritis that often doesn´t elevate the inflammation markers in the blood. Usually it takes 8 yrs or more to get a diagnosis for this, but thanks to Dr. Olek carefully listening to my symptoms, he referred me to the right specialist, and I got a correct diagnosis after "only" 5 years of worsening symptoms. I am on the right meds now, and feeling so much better. I have finally got my life back! I wish Dr. Olek had come here back in 2005!
