Why Us?

Rheumatology Department

Our family-focused team consists of board-certified rheumatologists (the only pediatric rheumatologists in the state of Arizona), pediatric nurses and medical assistants. When left untreated or under-treated, rheumatic diseases can cause disability in childhood and negatively affect a child's growth and development. We stand on the front lines with our patients to give them the best chance at a full, active life.

Making life easy

When patients need a team of doctors, scheduling can get hectic. That’s why we offer unique programs like our monthly lupus clinic. How it works: Patients with systemic lupus erythematosus who have kidney disease can see their pediatric rheumatologist and nephrologist all in one visit.

National affiliations

We ensure our patients get the best care. We’re proud to partner with the American College of Rheumatology, the Childhood Arthritis and Rheumatology Research Alliance and the Pediatric Rheumatology Clinical Study Group.
