Drs. Solomon, Jimenez and Peterson
About Our Practice
Rheumatology is the sub-specialty of Internal Medicine that deals with arthritis, autoimmune diseases, and other medical musculoskeletal problems.
Drs. Richard Jimenez, Andrew Solomon and Jeff Peterson have extensive experience with leading-edge technology and the latest in clinical research. Their goal is to get you back your life and help you manage your condition.
Many conditions which are primarily treated by other specialties, may have a rheumatologic manifestation at some point in time. Often it takes a patient several years and several physician visits to receive a rheumatologic diagnosis.
Our first goal is to help patients receive a diagnosis, or to confirm the diagnosis that best fits their medical issues. Our second goal is to provide a blueprint for treatment.
In order to provide this service to the greatest number of patients, we will generally act as consultants only, and refer a patient back to their PCP or referring physician with our recommendations for treatment.
In order to accomplish our goals, new patients will receive one new consultation visit, and one follow up visit that will be used to discuss, test results and diagnosis related issues. We will then provide written recommendations for the referring physician if that is where treatment would be better rendered
There may be times when we will be best suited to provide the long term management for an individual patient’s problems and will provide treatment as necessary.
Any further follow up visits will be available only if we feel that they are needed with us, as part of the recommended treatment plan, and if the plan is agreed to in writing.
The Arthritis Clinic offers a five-chair outpatient infusion center for management of arthritis and other rheumatologic conditions using intravenous medications, as well as on-site lab services and clinical research trials.
