What’s a Rheumatologist?

A rheumatologist is an internal medicine doctor with advanced training to diagnose and treat conditions that affect the bones, joints, and muscles. Your rheumatologist can also provide expert care for autoimmune diseases. These disorders happen when the body’s immune system attacks and harms its own tissues.

Feel confident you’re getting the best possible care because your Englewood Health provider is board certified and/or fellowship trained in their specialty.
