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.

Dr Arias is good for you if you are familiar with your disorder and just need follow ups if your condition is under control. He has good bedside manners and the staff is polite and no wait time. My experience was very disappointing. I went to him to get a second opinion on my diagnosis which is RA. Its been very aggressive and difficult to control. I felt comfortable with him and decided to stay with him although he was in a higher tier in my insurance and my out of pocket was 120.00. As my condition was getting under control it started to get out of control again and i had a lot of questions being this was new to me i had never been ill a day in my life. I would call his office and he does not get back to you in a timely fashion and when you see him i was feeling rushed and not getting the support i needed. I think he is very knowledgeable but has reached a point where its a bother for him to take time with the patient and make them feel his behind you when you need him, I only say this because im with a new Dr now and see the difference on patient care and quality of care. I don't feel like a number and have a better understanding of my illness and have gotten help with medicine that the ins give you a hard time to cover. If your condition is under control and don't need but regular checkups and an occasional visit for refills this is the place for you. If your new to your condition do yourself a favor and really look at 2 or 3 different doctors so that you can make a good decision..This doctor is not for you. Good luck
Highly recommended doctor
