Diagnosis and Treatment
The Arthritis Specialist
The complex medical issues faced by people with arthritis — in its more than 100 forms — are best diagnosed and treated by the rheumatologist. A rheumatologist is a specially trained physician with at least five years’ additional training after medical school in the diagnosis and treatment of people with disorders of the joints, muscles and bones. Under the care of a knowledgeable, experienced and dedicated rheumatologist like Scott Zashin, MD, patients with arthritis and related autoimmune conditions can move beyond the pain and onto a healthier and more active lifestyle.
Arthritis Diagnosis and Treatment
Our practice is dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of people with arthritis and related autoimmune diseases. Dr. Zashin is particularly focused on early, definitive diagnosis. Many of our patients come to Dr. Zashin because they have not had access to an effective treatment plan.
Dr. Zashin frequently sees patients seeking a second opinion in North Texas, and from around the United States for conditions such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, Osteoarthritis, Fibromyalgia, Osteoporosis and Sjögren's Syndrome.
Natural and Alternative Therapies
Dr. Zashin will often recommend natural and alternative therapies when indicated such as low dose naltrexone as well as natural supplements and herbal agents.
Food Sensitivity Testing
In some patients what they eat may be playing a role in their pain and fatigue. Because of this association, food sensitivity testing is available for those patients interested in exploring a possible link between specific foods they consume and their symptoms.
