Rheumatology Clinic

The University of Virginia Health System serves a population of approximately 2.5 to 3 million people in a rural setting. Most of this area does not have a rheumatologist available for consultation. Therefore, the patient population seen at the University of Virginia is quite diverse and encompasses the spectrum of rheumatic diseases.
