Systemic Lupus Erythematosus
An autoimmune disorder where the body mistakenly attacks healthy tissue. It can affect the skin, joints, kidneys, brain, and other organs.
It affects joint linings, causing painful swelling joints. Over time, the inflammation associated with rheumatoid arthritis can cause bone erosion and joint deformity.
It is an inflammatory arthritis that develops in people who have high levels of uric acid in the blood. The acid can form crystals in a joint and cause sudden, severe episodes of pain, redness, warmth and swelling.
Most people develop psoriasis first and are later diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis, but the joint problems can sometimes begin before skin patches appear.
It presents as a widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Physical exercise should be used in addition to any drug treatment.
Years of experience
What patients are saying
I've had an incredible experience being treated by Dr. Rivera. She is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable rheumatologist that I have ever met.
Have been seen by Dr. Rivera multiple times and always have a great experience. Staff answers my calls promptly.
My back pain is 80% relieved just 3 months after starting treatment, and I'm able to do many activities that I simply couldn't prior to treatment. The staff is also incredibly helpful and supportive.
