Rheumatologists deal with the diagnostic process and conservative treatment of rheumatic diseases - more than 100 conditions involving the musculoskeletal and/or the immune system. As experts in this field, we (rheumatologists) are well trained and strive to identify and evaluate your symptoms. We know that it is a must to put the right diagnosis as early as possible in order to initiate appropriate treatment. Many of these diseases best respond in their early stages.

The diagnostic process typically involves taking a complete medical history, physical examination and if necessary blood and imaging studies.
