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.

The Comprehensive Diagnostics includes the following:

  • Initial physician visit with physical (value $500) and musculoskeletal ultrasound examinations (value of up to $800), as clinically appropriate.

  • Standard rheumatologic laboratory test orders (value of over $800) and physician review of test results (value of $200).

  • Global treatment plan development (invaluable).

  • Second physician visit to review clinical findings and discuss your treatment plan (value of $400).

 

Total estimated value of $3400

Your investment: $1500
Please Note: For Comprehensive Diagnostics, $821 is due at the time of booking and the remaining $679 is due at the initial physician visit.

The value of the package is not only the clarity from the results but an effective holistic path to remission and health.

Protective Care Package

We extend our Protective Care offering to patients who require ongoing treatment to maintain optimum health for their rheumatologic disorder. 

The Protective Care Package includes the following:

  • Three "planned" physician visits per year delivered in person or by telehealth and up to two urgent visits for flare-ups.

  • Medication management to control any rheumatologic symptoms.

  • One musculoskeletal ultrasound examination per year, as clinically appropriate.

  • Physician communication between visits as needed.

One Year of Care

Patient Success Stories

T.B.

"I have been a patient of Dr. Amigues or 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."
