Why see a rheumatologist?
Pain in joints or swelling
Joint pain or inflammation is often symptomatic of diseases we treat. Some of the damage can be rapid and permanent, which is why we offer rapid appointments, most within a few days.
Abnormal test results
While abnormal test results are not definitive signs of disease, they should be ruled out by an expert. Look out for antinuclear antibodies (ANA), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), and rheumatoid factor (RF).
Cost effective treatment
We recently saw an insurance company’s provider manual. Its 246 pages were about imposing rules, but not supported physician’s judgement. We aim to change that – for less than a cost of a cup of coffee a day we deliver cost-effective care to you, without compromises.
We treat many diseases, including Rheumatoid arthritis, Osteoarthritis, Psoriatic Arthritis, Gout, Fibromyalgia, Sjögren's syndrome and dry eyes/mouth, Osteoporosis, Lyme disease, Polymyalgia Rheumatica, Polymyositis and Dermatomyositis, Sarcoidosis, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, and many others.
Most of our patients suffer from (percentages will not add up to 100%):
A form of arthritis where an immune system causes inflammation
Body experiences pain more acutely than in an average person
Skin reaction joins join paint as body's attack
