Do you have discomfort, stiffness or swelling in your joints? Is it interfering with your quality of your life or has it lasted for more than two weeks? If the answer is yes, consider scheduling an appointment with a Rheumatologist. Rheumatologists are internal medicine specialists who have completed additional 2-3 years of training in the evaluation of patients with arthritis-related conditions.
In some types of arthritis such as rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis, early diagnosis and treatment may help prevent or slow down joint damage, deformity, and disability. Other common conditions that may affect the joints include osteoarthritis, gout, and lupus. Rheumatologists see patients who have chronic pain and fatigue and a diagnosis has yet to be established.

Rheumatic diseases are sometimes complex and can be difficult to diagnose. Rheumatologists will gather your medical history and perform a physical exam to look for symptoms and signs of inflammation throughout the musculoskeletal system and the entire body. Your family history can sometimes play a significant role in the diagnosis of rheumatic disease.
If you’re suffering from any of the above conditions, schedule an appointment with one of our Rheumatologists today!
