Because rheumatic conditions are difficult to treat, it is important to see a specialist with deep and broad experience in treating rheumatic diseases. Your child’s evaluation begins with a complete medical history and physical examination by a board-certified pediatric rheumatologist. We also report back to your child’s primary care physician after each visit to keep them informed.

Our program includes outpatient infusion services available at our South Austin Clinic.
