Arthritis symptoms can primarily include pain, stiffness, or swelling in and around the joints. Anyone who is experiencing these symptoms should seek prompt medical attention. Early and accurate diagnosis of arthritis can help people avoid undue pain, limited activity, and permanent disability.
Rheumatologists are doctors who specialize in treating people who have persistent aches and pains. They are specially trained to determine whether you have arthritis and, if so, the kind you have and the best course of treatment for you. We are not able to evaluate the professional qualifications and competence of individual physicians included on this list. Inclusion of physicians on this list should not be interpreted as a recommendation by us concerning that physician’s competence or qualifications.
