Hopkins Medical Group is the only practice in which a Board-Certified Rheumatologist offers an integrative approach to treating autoimmune diseases. Dr. Hopkins will utilize both the current standards of medical care for diagnosing and treating rheumatologic conditions (e.g. medication including biologics; infusion therapy; lab tests) as well as her functional medicine expertise to evaluate your symptoms.
After making a diagnosis, Dr. Hopkins will help you understand possible triggers that led to the disease and provide you with an array of treatment options. If Dr. Hopkins determines you would benefit from a more in-depth approach which would include nutrition, supplements, lifestyle modifications and supportive therapies such as massage or acupuncture, she will offer you the option to be part of our Genius Of Wellness 360 program.
After your initial Rheumatology consults with Dr. Hopkins, if you would like to continue within our practice you will need to join as a member. Since most autoimmune diseases are not diagnosed and treated in one visit, we ask patients to join the practice for six months in order to fully utilize all the resources within the practice and make the most progress with their health.
Examples of diseases Dr. Hopkins treats:
- Rheumatoid and Osteoarthritis
- Psoriatic Arthritis
- Polymyalgia Rheumatica
- Sjogren’s Syndrome
- Lyme Disease
- Tendinitis & Bursitis
