 +=====Lymphologist=====
 +**Please note** there is no official clinical designation of lymphologist. ​ The term may be used in a couple ways. First, for those of us with lymphedema, we often refer to doctors who are treating or who have extesnive knowledge of lymphedema as lymphologists. ​ We use this so that we might share with other lymphedema patients doctors we know that can help us.
 +
 +The other way I have seen it used more and more is by doctors who have sudden;y realized that they may get additional patients by referring to themselves are lymphologist. ​ Be very careful if you see this.  I have found a number of doctors claiming to be experts in lymphedema, calling themselves lymphologists as anything but.  ​
