Eugene and Springfield-area patients with issues involving their joints, soft tissues, autoimmune diseases, tendonitis, bursitis and other connective tissue disorders appreciate the coordinated care they receive from the rheumatologists at Oregon Medical Group’s Rheumatology clinic.
Rheumatology is a rapidly evolving medical specialty, with regular advancements and scientific discoveries. Most new treatment approaches are based on clinical research in immunology and the resulting improved understanding of the genetic basis of rheumatological disorders. Future treatments may include gene therapy as well. At present, evidence-based medical treatment of rheumatological disorders has helped OMG patients with rheumatism lead a near-normal life.
A visit to the rheumatologist is typically made by referral and covered by insurance. Still, you should always check with insurance before committing to an appointment. Our team is here to help you identify your insurance company’s requirements.
