What is a rheumatologist?

A rheumatologist is an internist who received further training in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disease and systemic autoimmune conditions, commonly referred to as rheumatic diseases. Rheumatic diseases affect many organ systems, most notably the musculoskeletal system (joints, muscles and bones) which can lead to pain, swelling, stiffness and deformity. Our providers perform a detailed evaluation, working toward the appropriate diagnosis of rheumatic disease and providing a comprehensive treatment plan if established.

Integrative medicine is healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person, including all aspects of lifestyle. Based on your condition, your provider might blend integrative approaches with an already established conventional care plan. Common integrative modalities include nutrition, mind-body medicine, supplements and movement.
