Arthritis treatment question

“I have Rheumatoid Arthritis (some Dr.s say it is Poly Arthritis), anyway, I wondered is there a really good Dr. or medical center in the D.C. area that can treat this, that anyone could recommend thanks for the input!”

    A friend with RA adores Dr. Borenstein of Arthritis and Rheumatism Associates at 2021 K.

      I see Dr Borenstein for a different rheumatic disease and I like him. He doesn’t over treat, especially if you tell him you’d rather not take crazy medications or get injections. He let it be up to me whether I took biologics or not and told me not to get the steroid injections in my joints. I appreciated that. I think in general the folks at Arthritis and Rheumatism Associates are great.

    OP here just wanted to say a huge thank you to Dan and all the help with getting this question across and a huge thank you for all the commenters and their recommendations, I WILL get through this -will get treatment and finally be done with Arthritis, at least I hope!
    (BTW so far the hold up seems to be me having medicare, AmeriHealth and not many places accepting that insurance…oh well I keep hope alive..)
