Dr. Steven G Atcheson has the following 2 specialties
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.

Dr Atcheson is a great doctor, very knowledgeable. I have been his patient for over five years now and have only the best things to say about quality of my experience: everything from friendly staff in his office to the attentive and personalized care I have been receiving. I would definitely recommend Dr Atcheson as your rheumatologist.

Dr Atcheson and his Nurse Practitioner Kimberly Morris are fantastic. Dr Atcheson takes time to listen to his patients as does Kimberly. I feel that Kimberly is just as knowlegable as the doctor and I trust her as much with my care.I have RA. When I am in a flare, I am able to call the office and a prescription is called to my pharmacy right away. I live over 60 miles from Reno and driving there with a flare is not a good idea. I am grateful that these providers care enough about their patients and not just getting an office visit to recoup money.Both have been very aggressive in my RA treatment and I am in remission and have been for some time. I am still on medications, but these two fine providers and their office staff make my ability to get care the best possible.
