Hi Dr. Ashori here. What is the reason you think you might need Enbrel, is it for rheumatoid arthritis or other kind of arthritis?

Expert:  Dr. Ashori replied 9 months ago.

Are you asking who else can prescribe it or are you looking for a neurologist recommendation?

Hematologists and some internal medicine doctors can prescribe it as well but you are correct, neurologists prescribe it quite a bit.

There are other options as well such as prednisone which might be a little easier on your system depending on the reason for needing Enbrel.
