About Trinity Clinic - Arthritis and Rheumatology
Trinity Clinic Arthritis and Rheumatology provides high quality care for patients with musculoskeletal problems. A rheumatologist is trained in internal medicine and has further education in the diagnosis and non-surgical management of arthritis as well as other diseases of the joints, muscles and bones. These physicians are experts in joint and bursa injections. Rheumatologists have two to three years of specialized training in rheumatology, which follows four years of medical school and three years of internal medicine training. Additionally, our physicians have more than 20 years of combined private practice experience.

Rheumatology is a field that deals with much more than just aches and pains. Our physicians are committed to making the correct diagnosis as the initial step in patient care. The Trinity Clinic rheumatologists realize the importance of treating conditions that can be devastating to a patient’s quality of life. Early treatment can often prevent significant long-term complications.
