Neither is exactly close, but Dr. Robert Fox at the Scripps Institute or Dr. Nancy Carteron in San Francisco.  The problem is neither takes insurance so you pay up front and then are reimbursed out of network by insurance.

I see Dr Carteron. She's very detail oriented, and focused on the individual, rather than "a standard approach to all Sjogren's patients". I like her very much, and feel like I'm getting good treatment.
