Evaluation of Difficult Diagnoses
If you have suffered from longstanding pain, fatigue, rashes, or other systemic symptoms and have not improved with your current treatment, it is possible you have an autoimmune or inflammatory condition. There are many diseases that occur due to a sensitive immune system and can be difficult to diagnose without comprehensive evaluations that a rheumatologist may offer. We are happy to review your previous diagnoses and other medical records. Please bring this information with you when you visit our providers.
We provide a comfortable, safe, and monitored setting to receive all of the available infusion medications your provider may recommend. Patients with rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, spondylitis, osteoporosis, lupus, and vasculitis can benefit from subcutaneous and intravenous therapies. These are specialized medications given by our nursing staff in a separate infusion suite.We have a dedicated team to help with getting approvals for these medications from your insurance carrier.
We perform all forms of musculoskeletal procedures as part of your treatment. These include joint injections, tendon injections, hyaluronic acid treatment, and platelet rich plasma. These are performed both with and without ultrasound guidance. Injections of medications can help with pain and swelling, or help our doctors make a diagnosis.
