Rheumatologist FAQs

What is a rheumatologist?

Rheumatologists are internal medicine specialists trained to diagnose and treat inflammatory conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system. You may consider seeing a rheumatologist if you or your primary care provider is concerned you may have an autoimmune disease, chronic pain, arthritis, or degenerative joint conditions. After a thorough physical exam, diagnostic imaging, and lab testing, a rheumatologist can provide treatment through a medication treatment plan, anti-inflammatory injections, or aspirations. Rheumatologists can help you manage your chronic inflammatory conditions, so you can live a more comfortable life.
