Rheumatology is the subspecialty of Internal Medicine which deals with the diagnosis and management of arthritis and autoimmune diseases, some of which affect other tissues of the body besides the joints. We also specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis, lupus, gout, bursitis, tendonitis, and other connective tissue disorders.
Our physicians have each completed a three-year residency program in Internal Medicine. Following this training, they completed two additional years of subspecialty training in Rheumatology and were certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine. Therefore, they have been thoroughly trained and passed comprehensive examinations in both Internal Medicine and Rheumatology. Refer to Physicians to read their biographies.
Although our physicians are trained to function as Internists, we have limited our practice to Rheumatology. While we will be happy to treat medical problems incident to your rheumatic disease, we usually do not provide annual physical exams and the like. If you need a primary physician, we will be happy to assist you with a referral.
