What is
Rheumatology?

Rheumatology is the science and care of immune-mediated (autoimmune and inflammatory) disorders that primarily affect the body's musculoskeletal system.

I am an excellent diagnostician and may be the first clinician (after you have seen several other doctors) to make the diagnosis of your condition.


Once a diagnosis of a rheumatologic disorder is established, I will offer a specific, targeted treatment plan to restore your body’s balance and guide you on the road to recovery and full remission.

At UnabridgedMD, I offer a blended approach that combines the best in modern medicine with traditional Eastern healing for holistic, whole-body health.

Patient Success Stories

T.B.

"I have been a patient of Dr. Amigues for over 4 years. I am a very complicated case. In fact I relocated from NJ to CO to be seen by her! Finally I had some answers. She does the testing that other doctors wouldn’t do, leading to an accurate DX. She is not hesitant to prescribe the latest treatments. I finally had a plan of action. It helped me tremendously to control disease symptoms. She’s provided her personal email and was always super responsive. She is a truer gem of medicine! I am so thankful for her medical care."
