Rheumatology

About This Provider

Board certified in internal medicine and rheumatology, Dr. Vazquez will treat the full scope of rheumatological issues, including autoimmune disorders, tendonitis, bursitis and inflammatory and noninflammatory arthritis.

"I like rheumatology because it is a very challenging field," she says. "They usually consult us when they don't know what else to do with a patient. So being able to provide an answer to that individual...I think that's one of the main things I like about rheumatology. You build up these relationships with these patients that are long term and long lasting."
