Rheumatology also includes several autoimmune disorders like lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. Dr. Scott has several years of experience working with rheumatology and can accurately identify potential problems that may be the first signs of an autoimmune disorder. Identifying and treating the symptoms are only the first steps. Establishing an effective treatment plan is key to slowing down the progression of the condition. The doctor and his staff take great pride in being able to work with the residents of Arroyo Grande and many of the surrounding communities and towns including Santa Maria and San Luis Obispo. When patients visit the Arthritis Medical Center, they will receive a complete physical examination. The doctor will take the information from the evaluation and use it to determine a diagnosis for any problems that present themselves. If further testing is needed, the Arthritis Medical Center has much of the equipment needed to be able to perform the test and help the doctor establish an accurate diagnosis. Once the cause of a patient's symptoms has been identified, a treatment plan will be created, and the doctor will discuss all of the different options that are available to the client.
