If you have symptoms of psoriatic arthritis, it’s important to see a doctor who can diagnose your condition before it progresses. A rheumatologist is a doctor who specializes in joint conditions, including psoriatic arthritis. He or she can help you find a treatment that can help improve your symptoms and help prevent further joint damage.
Your family doctor can refer you to a rheumatologist who:
- Has advanced knowledge of psoriatic arthritis and other conditions of the immune system
- Sees many people who have symptoms of psoriatic arthritis
- Can prescribe you a medicine that can treat skin and joint symptoms and help stop further joint damage
