Rheumatology is a sub-specialty in internal medicine devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of rheumatic diseases. The emphasis is on clinical problems involving joints, soft tissue, and allied conditions of connective tissue. These conditions include rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, lupus, gout, ankylosing spondylitis, osteoporosis, vasculitis, and inflammatory muscle disease. Most treatment modalities are based on immunology.
"I just had my first visit with Dr. McMillan and was very impressed with his overall knowledge, ability to communicate to a patient in a meaningful way and the professional demeanor of all of his staff. I was put on a waiting list as my appointment was scheduled over a month out and they got me in much sooner. It is a pleasure to drive from Tallahassee to Thomasville to receive such professional care!"
