Frequently Asked Questions

We recommend you first see a family practice or internal medicine physician for undiagnosed conditions. This approach will be more cost-effective for you. With the primary care physician's specific or suspected rheumatological diagnosis, our doctors' treatment plan can then be more focused on your medical condition, and consequently your time in our office will be better utilized.
Our office does not require a referral to schedule an appointment; however, some insurance plans require a referral to cover the cost of the visit. We recommend contacting your insurance carrier if you are unsure.
