  • Nationally recognized care: Some of our locations have achieved special recognitions in rheumatology. For example, the Scleroderma Foundation designates Cleveland Clinic Weston as a Scleroderma Center. And the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research recognizes this location as a Sarcoidosis Center of Excellence.

  • Quick access: At Cleveland Clinic Florida, you benefit from shorter-than-average wait times to see a rheumatologist. Our longest wait times are one to two weeks, compared to months-long wait times at other locations in the region.

  • Coordinated treatment: Rheumatologists work closely with multiple subspecialists, such as dermatology, pulmonology, orthopaedic surgery, neurology and more. When you receive care with Cleveland Clinic Florida, all these specialists have access to your medical records. This record-sharing across our system ensures that you receive coordinated care with no unnecessary or repeat tests.

  • Well-rounded, personalized treatment: Our rheumatologists use a holistic approach to your treatment. We focus on educating and empowering you to take an active role in managing your health.
