Care Philosophy

A lot of people think of rheumatologists as treating old-age arthritis, but actually, surprisingly, a lot of our patients are very young to middle-age individuals who have diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, vasculitis - as well as we treat older patients who end up getting osteoarthritis. A lot of the conservative approaches actually don't even require medication. So a lot of it may be physical therapy or other lifestyle changes that they can make to help their disease. And I think some patients actually prefer to do many of those things first. They can start from very conservative approaches to then more aggressive approaches, including a whole host of medications. I think that not only have the new medications that have come out over the last ten years made my life easier because I have more to offer my patients, but they've also helped alleviate a lot of the concerns that patients have because we have a lot more options in terms of treating their diseases.
