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.

"I think dr Paget is lovely and brilliant. I can see where he was the best 10 yrs ago. He has moments of being invested in my care. But I often feel like he’s a visiting physician to my case. He will go from being invested and so on the ball to being oddly evasive. I am wondering if he should focus more on consults than being a primary rheumatologist for new patients. His brilliance is needed. I would love to keep him as consulting. I wish I could combine his mind with someone else’s follow through."
"Dr Goodman is amazing. For years I was misdiagnosed and lived with pain. Dr Goodman properly diagnosed me and gave me several treatment options to manage my pain. Together we manage my ankylosing spondylitis and adjust treatment as necessary. I felt compelled to write this when I saw her google reviews. Dr Goodman and her entire team are a definite 5/5 stars"
