Ages: Adults Only
Insurance: Medicare, Medicaid and most others
The rheumatology center provides care for patients with the full spectrum of rheumatic and autoimmune diseases. These include arthritis and allied conditions and disorders of connective tissue. This center has scleroderma experts Drs. Shiva Arami and Nadera J Sweiss and they diagnose and treat adults with all types of scleroderma.
Scleroderma often takes many years to diagnose because of insidious onset, vague initial symptoms, and low physician and public awareness. It is typically diagnosed and treated by rheumatologists, but because it is a rare and very complex disease, there are only a few dozen scleroderma specialists in the United States. Expert care can be crucial for proper screening, diagnosis, patient education, clinical trials, and treatment.
