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.

I got in to the room in just a few minutes and I was a little early too so I was done just after my appointment time. Dr. Peterson is so nice and caring. Even though I wasn't with him much he made me feel like I had his attention and I felt like all my questions were answered. The staff is awesome and just as great as the doctor. They explained everything and introduced me around to the lab etc. Great all around team.
Dr Peterson is kind and compassionate AND has gotten my RA totally under control. I feel good most of the time since I have been going to him. Questions are always answered in a way I understand. I feel safe entrusting my healthcare to Dr Peterson! In fact, I moved 30 miles away but commute to stay with him rather than change to a new rheumo!DR PETERSON ROCKS!
