Best of the BurgAt Mary Washington Rheumatology, our goal is to offer excellent, thorough, and caring treatment to adult patients who have rheumatic diseases. Rheumatologists deal with issues that involve joints, soft tissues, and other conditions related to connective tissues. Our rheumatology team specializes in treating autoimmune diseases, inflammatory conditions, and osteoporosis. We may also offer first-time consultation services for musculoskeletal pain issues.

There are more than 100 types of rheumatic diseases, including but not limited to, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus, systemic sclerosis, systemic vasculitis, osteoarthritis, gout, spondyloarthropathy, osteoporosis and psoriatic arthritis. Many of these are very serious diseases that can be difficult to diagnose and treat. Many of the autoimmune diseases may require various blood tests and imaging modalities to best help diagnose and plan treatment.

How Does the Rheumatologist Work with Other Healthcare Professionals?

Patients with autoimmune disease are usually complex patients requiring multi specialty care. A team work approach, involving various specialists, is often required to help diagnose and manage complicated autoimmune conditions.

We often work with a team of providers in the community to help treat our patients including primary care physician, various sub specialists, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, psychologists and mental health providers.

What should I do if I think I have a Rheumatic or Auto-immune disease?

It is best to obtain an initial evaluation with your primary care provider to discuss your symptoms and concerns, and to obtain further testing as needed. If your primary care provider is concerned about an underlying auto-immune disease, then they may refer you to our office.

Masking is optional at all MWHC facilities. If you are experiencing respiratory symptoms the day of your appointment, please wear a mask to protect yourself, other patients, and our staff. Up to two support persons or parents may accompany the patient inside the office.
