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.
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.
