Special Interests

My research is focused on evaluating new approaches to better understand and treat patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I am particularly interested in the interface between Rheumatoid Arthritis and lung disease. I treat a wide range of autoimmune disorders. I have a special interest in treating patients that develop lung manifestations of their autoimmune disorders.

In addition to treating rheumatologic conditions, I offer a procedure and Musculoskeletal (MSK) Ultrasound clinic once a week. During these clinics, I often see patients that are referred by other rheumatologists as well as other specialists to perform diagnostic and therapeutic evaluation and procedures which may require the use of ultrasound.
