About the Early Arthritis Clinic (EAC)
Patients of the Early Arthritis Clinic will be seen and evaluated within two weeks. The patients with confirmed RA will be seen every 2-3 weeks until remission is achieved. You may be considered to have Early RA if you have any of the following:
- 3 or more swollen joints
- Joint symptoms for > 6 weeks but < 6 months
- Morning stiffness > 30 minutes
We hope that this rapid referral clinic will assist our patients in providing appropriate, highly effective therapy in a timely fashion. The recent availability of new therapies (Enbrel, Remicade, Kineret, Humira, Rituxan, Orencia, Simponi, Cimzia, Actmera) have helped make it possible for our patients to manage this once crippling disease. Please feel free to contact us for more information or to schedule an appointment with AOCBV today!
