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.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

All terms are explained completely and in terms I can easily interpret. The office utilizes the "My Chart" system which is amazing and keeps constant communication open between Dr.Garriga and myself.I have immediate test results via this system, can make or change appointments, refill medications, etc. Very effective and time efficient. Garriga is a concerned/caring person who has even called me at home to check on me. Compassionate with every visit and I feel as though I am the only patient in the clinic! The medical treatment has been conservative yet very appropriate and I am nearing remission which I felt was an impossibility when we started our journey several months ago. Another compliment to Garriga is that he is not intimidated by calling in for second opinions, etc. He does not claim to have all the answers but does claim to "get to the bottom of this" and he goes right after the research!
