At Kern Medical, we are pleased to offer our patients access to the most advanced tests and treatments for rheumatic conditions such as arthritis and lupus. Our goal is to uncover what causes the immune system to attack healthy tissues. Our board-certified rheumatologists are involved in clinical research of rheumatic conditions so they can improve patient quality of life and limit symptoms such as pain and swelling. We understand how chronic rheumatic illnesses can cause stress and anxiety, and our primary goal is to help our patients have a higher quality of life.

  • Lupus
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Scleroderma
  • Vasculitis
  • Dermatomyositis

    • Ankylosing Spondylitis
    • Psoriatic Arthritis
