rheumatoid arthritis. Northwest Diagnostic Clinic rheumatologists specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of rheumatic diseases, as well as focusing on the overall bone health of our patients.

Many patients will ask for referrals from their primary care physician before seeing one of our rheumatologists, but others can refer themselves.
