Weill Cornell Medicine's rheumatologists offer the highest quality care for patients with a wide variety of rheumatic disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis and other joint diseases, systemic lupus erythematosus, vasculitis syndromes, gout, and others. Since rheumatological diseases are often associated with other conditions, our goals are to provide individualized treatment based on each person's medical profile and to make every attempt to help each patient find relief.
Our rheumatology staff focuses not only on our patients' "aches and pains", but on the whole person. We offer many activities that involve our patients, including support groups (LupusLine, Charla de Lupus and Myositis), clinical trials, lectures to enhance the patient-physician relationship, and the hospital's Voices program, which assists patients with various managed care issues.
"Dr. Sammaritano has been my rheumatologist for 10 years. It took me years to find someone who I felt listened to me. Dr. S responds to emails and phonecalls and makes me feel heard. She's the best!"
"I adore Dr. Yuan! So thoughtful and caring."
"Excellent doctor! He answered all the questions I needed to ask and didn’t rush me. He seemed knowledgeable and understanding. I’ll be back!"
