Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Shibuya "I wanted to specialize in an interesting field of medicine that saw the birth of the biologics which transformed the lives of many rheumatoid arthritis patients. Rheumatology also allowed me to focus on a disease mechanism that is affecting different organ systems. I also believe that rheumatologist should help their primary care physicians, other specialists and patients to manage their many co-morbidities e.g. weight problem, most of all - treating pt holistically with Intergrative Medicine."
