Rheumatology, Immunology and Allergy

MedStar Georgetown physicians in rheumatology and immunology boast a long tradition of exceptional patient care and research for allergic conditions, sensitive or malfunctioning immune systems, and health issues that affect the joints, muscles, and bones.


Our doctors are experts at diagnosing and managing a broad spectrum of rheumatic diseases and provide comprehensive subspecialty services.


Immunology is the study of the body systems that defend us against microbial pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi, and many diseases occur when the immune system can’t do its job, or when it ignores those pathogens and attacks its own cells and tissues.

MedStar Georgetown’s immunology physicians are prepared to diagnose and treat disorders of the immune system.

Because the diseases our doctors treat are complex and can often affect multiple organ systems, our rheumatology and immunology division works closely with other MedStar Health subspecialists. By collaborating with physical and occupational therapists and orthopaedic surgeons, we provide expert consultation and state-of-the-art approaches to patient management and care.
