“As a Rheumatologist, given the chronicity of most rheumatologic conditions we deal with, I aim to fully inform the patients about their disease process, offer them several treatment options and get them involved in the decision making for management of their conditions. The patient and I will then develop a multidisciplinary approach to his/her care taking into account all aspects of the patient’s physical and emotional well-being.”
