Rheumatology

Our rheumatologists are trusted experts in the health of your muscles, joints and immune system. Different from orthopedic doctors who treat bone and muscle issues related to injury, rheumatologists specialize in treating chronic pain and swelling in your muscles and joints related to disease rather than injury. They will work with your primary care provider to screen and treat the following conditions:

  • Arthritis/Joint pain
  • Chronic back pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Gout
  • Lupus
  • Osteoporosis
  • Psoriatic Arthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Shoulder bursitis
  • Sjogren’s syndrome

To make an appointment with our rheumatologist, talk to your provider about a referral today.

Specialty Care services are available to all Alaska residents and primarily take place in Sitka and Juneau. If you are a patient who is interested in traveling to attend one of these clinics, please speak with your provider. Patient housing is available but call as soon as possible because space is limited.

If you are a patient already scheduled for a specialty clinic and need to change your appointment, or if you have general questions about the specialty services we offer, please call 907.966.HERE or emailĀ specialtycare@searhc.org.
