Rheumatologists concern themselves with the diagnosis and treatment of disorders involving joints, bones and other connective tissues. This encompasses a broad range of diseases including arthritis, osteoporosis, gout, lupus, back pain, tendonitis and fibromyalgia. At BVMA, our rheumatologists are skilled at comprehensive diagnostic/therapeutic evaluation and treatment for adults with acute and chronic rheumatic diseases. The doctors provide diagnostic EMGs and bone densitometry (DEXA) at our facility.
