Overview

At Mass General Waltham, we diagnose and treat a wide array of rheumatologic conditions, including:

  • Gout
  • IgG4-related systemic disease
  • Lupus
  • Lyme disease
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Paget’s disease
  • Sjogren’s syndrome
  • Vasculitis

We also perform joint aspirations and crystal analysis at our Waltham location.

Because we offer the same menu of world-class services at Mass General Waltham as we do at our main location in Boston, patients enjoy the flexibility of traveling to either location for care.

What to Expect

At your initial visit, one of our doctors typically conducts a full exam. We will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan based on your condition, lifestyle and individual goals.

Because rheumatologic conditions often affect multiple organs, we can refer you to the appropriate Mass General specialist at our main location, should you need it.

Scheduling an Appointment

Patients generally have shorter wait times for appointments than at our Boston location. Contact us at 617-726-7938 to schedule an appointment.

Although we do not offer urgent care appointments at our Waltham location, we can refer you to a rheumatologist at our main location in Boston.

Clinical Trials

We conduct a wide range of clinical studies at our main location in Boston. These studies evaluate new therapies for a broad spectrum of rheumatologic conditions, including lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, IgG4-related systemic disease and osteoarthritis.
