What kind of doctor should I see?

I have osteoarthritis in my low back. I've seen a physiatrist who specializes in the spine, and I like him, but he's not very communicative. I would like to see someone else, but I'm not sure who. [more inside]

Does our personal injury claim stand a chance?

My fiancée is only 24 years old, but she has osteoarthritis (see this previous question). As a result, she has a lot of pain, particularly in her back, but she is just generally sore all over.
