Some rheumatic and autoimmune diseases can be difficult to identify in their early stages. At Atlantic Health System, our health care teams are trained to recognize the symptoms and make a correct diagnosis so that appropriate treatment can begin early.
Conditions treated at our programs include:
- Inflammatory arthritis – including rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis
- Systemic lupus erythematosus (Lupus)
- Sjögren’s syndrome
- Polymyalgia rheumatica
- Gout and Pseudogout
Defining the disease is the necessary first step, without which expectations are unclear and treatment imprecise. Our board-certified rheumatologists combine detailed physical examinations, careful history and sophisticated immunologic and imaging tests to achieve a quick and accurate diagnosis.
Many of these same tests may be useful later for monitoring the disease or the effectiveness of treatments. Rheumatic and autoimmune diseases services may vary by location. Please confirm when booking an appointment. Physician services are provided through Atlantic Medical Group >
