Arthritis and Rheumatology Care Center

The arthritis center was established in 2013 and provides care for patients with underlying Rheumatological conditions such as Rheumatoid arthritis, Psoriatic arthritis, Ankylosing spondylitis, Lupus, and Lupus-related diseases. Diagnosis and care are also provided for conditions such as Osteoarthritis, Osteoporosis, and Gout, among others. We provide diagnostic evaluation and education to patients with fibromyalgia and counsel on therapeutic lifestyle changes. We also provide in-office infusion and treatment for patients with medications to treat both rheumatic and allied diseases. Ultrasonography is an essential non-painful diagnostic tool that is being utilized in the practice for evaluation, diagnosis, and to aid therapy. Ultrasound is a non-invasive, painless, and simple approach that aids in diagnosis at the point of care. We stay current on these approaches and utilize these biomarkers, where appropriate, to reach our treatment goals. We also recommend various options that promote a non-invasive approach to treating regional pain. Finally, because chronic diseases affect lifestyle, we encourage a ‘whole life’ approach to improve the outcomes of our patients by promoting wellness practices.
