Arthritis and Rheumatology Clinic

The interdisciplinary arthritis and rheumatology care team coordinates patient care and education. Experts in this area provide specialized care for patients with:

  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Crystalline-induced arthritis (gout and pseudogout)
  • Osteoarthritis 
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Systemic lupus erythematosus 
  • Vasculitis 
  • Other medical musculoskeletal problems

As part of your care team, our specialty pharmacists work closely with your doctor to be sure any concerns about your medications are shared with your entire team. The pharmacist will teach you how to take your medications and to help you monitor any side effects.

Arthritis and Rheumatology Scheduling

Our trained rheumatologists are here to give you world-class care. We know that there is limited access to our specialists, so thank you for your patience. We want you to know that we are working to make sure that you can be seen in our clinics as quickly as you can. 

We put you in the next new appointment slot as soon as your primary care provider refers you to us.

We use a cancellation list to make earlier appointments. We send offers for a new appointment through the UI Health Care MyChart system. If you do not have a MyChart account, our scheduling team will call you. We look forward to seeing you in our clinics.
