A Rheumatologist is a primary care specialist who is qualified by additional training (2-3 year fellowship beyond internal medicine), in the diagnosis and treatment of arthritis and other diseases of the joints, muscles, and bones. If you are experiencing some of the common symptoms of autoimmune diseases, such as joint pain and swelling, loss of motion or strength, or severe fatigue, a rheumatology specialist can help.
ARC Rheumatologist doctors provide state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment for rheumatic diseases that affect the body, including over 100 types of arthritic issues, including the more common ones like osteoarthritis, gout, osteoporosis, rheumatism and rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and lupus, and the more rare diseases such as ankylosing spondylitis and vasculitis. Additionally, our physicians offer consultative and continuing care for patients with regional musculoskeletal disorders such as hand pain, shoulder pain, hip pain, and knee pain. ARC also offers on-site infusion therapy that can help patients treat arthritic issues.

What is Arthritis?

Arthritis and other rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases are very common, affecting over 54 million Americans, including nearly 300,000 children ages 16 and younger. These are not a single disease; but refer generally to joint pain or joint disease. People of all ages, sexes and races can have arthritis, and it is the leading cause of disability in America.
