Inland Rheumatology Clinic and Treatment Center in Waterville Maine

We provide considerate, attentive care to meet the individual health needs of every patient. And, as a member of EMHS, we have access to resources and best practices that help us provide the highest quality healthcare. A number of highly trained rheumatology specialists are available at both Inland and Eastern Maine Medical Center, our system's advanced medical care center.

Compassionate Rheumatology Care and Treatment For All Ages

Most of us will experience some type of normal muscle or joint pain during our lives. Often, the discomfort is attributable to some recent physical activity or minor injury. If there is no known cause of the discomfort and the pain persists longer than you would expect, it might be time to schedule an evaluation to determine whether or not there is the possibility of an underlying rheumatic condition.
 
Our Rheumatology clinic and treatment center provides evaluation, care and treatment of rheumatologic conditions for those with arthritis or other musculoskeletal and autoimmune diseases. These conditions are typically characterized by inflammation of the body's connective tissue.

At Inland, our primary and specialty care practices, and our hospital-based services are here for you, each one providing personalized, respectful, and skilled care.

Specializing in Rheumatology Care & Evaluation
 
Due to the complexity of rheumatic diseases, they can be difficult to diagnose.  Inland rheumatologists will take the time needed to review your medical history, and that of your family, look for symptoms of inflammation, and perform any necessary exams and tests. If a specific rheumatic condition is diagnosed, your Inland provider will work closely and compassionately with you to develop a personalized treatment plan. Our ultimate goal is to help you live more happily and comfortably.
