rheumatology

There are more than 100 different types of rheumatic diseases. Many of these conditions are complex and thus hard to diagnose. Our physicians have the knowledge and training to recognize symptoms early and design a personalized treatment plan that is most beneficial for each patient. Our physicians are able to utilize ultrasound, infusion, injections and pharmacotherapy to manage chronic and complex medical cases.

At Premier HealthCare Associates, our rheumatologists offer treatment for the following conditions:

  • Autoimmune disease
  • Arthritis
  • Gout
  • Lupus
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Scleroderma
  • Vasculitis

This list is not all encompassing. If you have a rheumatologic or autoimmune illness that is not listed above, we encourage you to schedule an appointment.

Although rheumatic illnesses are chronic conditions, effective modern treatment options are available to help you live better with your disease.
