I am excited to share that a nurse practitioner will be joining me in my practice soon! As you know, there is a shortage of rheumatologists in the nation and especially in the Midwest area. Patients are often waiting 6-8 months to see a rheumatologist about their joint pain and symptoms which is just mind boggling!
I am really grateful that St Luke's is supporting me and my patients by adding additional staff to help out! Hopefully we can recruit a new rheumatologist in coming years since many older physicians are retiring from practice soon.
