- Pediatric Rheumatology
A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Dr. Chalom is a wonderful doctor. My son had been sick for over a year, evaluated by a handful of specialists, hospitalized a dozen times and not one doctor was able to diagnose him. We found that when the doctors couldn't explain a problem we were told he was making it up or we should have him psychologically evaluated.After doing our own research and seeing Dr. Chalom with all of our research and tests results she was not 100% sure of what was wrong but took one step at a time and my son is now a normal functioning child.Dr. Chalom takes her time, listens to the patient/parent and has a wonderful bedside manner. As a parent I would highly recommend her to anyone with a child with a serious illness who needs a Rheumatologist who is excellent in her field.
