  • 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.

dr nils s erikson

I had swollen salivary glands in my neck, very prominent you could see them, felt like little balloons. He said he couldn't feel anything. Said my blood work was normal, yet I had two abnormals on there. He never looks at you when he talks to you mostly has his eyes closed. Never investigates my pain just wants me to take prednisone and a anti-mylaria med. I am very frustrated, wanted to like him and hoping he would help me.
