Rheumatologists at HSS see a high volume of patients as well as highly complex cases which makes the level of care provided extraordinary and unique. Because many rheumatic diseases tend to be chronic, patients who come to HSS benefit from developing long-term and close relationships with their rheumatologist. These knowledgeable and compassionate physicians understand the illnesses that they treat and bring the most modern and optimal treatments to their patients. Their association with the foremost academic medical center in the world brings the best medical care to each doctor-patient interaction. We focus our efforts on caring, trust, communication, and the appreciation of what state-of-the-art medicine is.
HSS embraces a philosophy of integrative care as a world leader in the research and treatment of rheumatic disease. On a day-by-day basis, HSS rheumatologists interact closely with many other essential healthcare professionals necessary to improve our patient's lives and rid them of the limitations imposed upon them by arthritis. This includes our world-class orthopaedic surgeons, physical and occupational therapists, radiologists, anesthesiologists, and clinical and basic research scientists.
