"Never got into the office to see the doctor, I was treated so poorly by the human that finally answered the phone that I will never even walk into this office. You HAVE to have a referring doctor with records to even make an appointment, they won't even consider seeing you if you haven't seen other doctors! Don't bother even calling, so rude, so dismissive!"August 2, 2019
What is Rheumatology?Rheumatology is the medical specialty that is concerned with arthritis and other diseases of inflammation. Inflammation can occur anywhere in the body, but it is most common in the joints and connective tissues. Arthritis, which occurs in the joints, is also a very common condition, so rheumatology is strongly associated with joint care. But rheumatology is about more that just arthritis. Other conditions that a rheumatologist might treat include:
- Lupus, a chronic inflammatory disease
- Ankylosing spondylitis, inflammation at the base of the spine
- Sjogren's syndrome, an autoimmune disorder that stops production of tears and saliva
- Fibromyalgia, a disorder causing widespread, chronic pain and fatigue
