These conditions are known collectively as systemic rheumatic diseases. Rheumatologic disorders may also affect the blood vessels, skin, nerves and most internal organs.

    At SMC, rheumatologists collaborate closely with physician experts in many specialties, depending upon the nature of the rheumatologic disorder. They also work closely with your local doctor to ensure a smooth transition in your care when appropriate. This multidisciplinary teamwork ensures you receive seamless care that addresses all of your individual, specific health needs.
