Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Hallegua "Patients with arthritis and other rheumatic illnesses often have symptoms for a long time before an accurate diagnosis is established and appropriate therapy instituted. No two patients are alike and only careful and patient assessment of symptoms and signs will reveal what is wrong. Patient preferences for various treatment has been considered and less aggressive treatments should be chosen as long as no harm will result in choosing complementary therapy."
