Rheumatologists specialise in the diagnosis, treatment and management of rheumatic diseases that may involve joints, soft tissues, autoimmune diseases, vasculitis, and heritable connective tissue disorders.
This will often involve liaising with the referring doctor / physiotherapist and the organisation of high quality investigations, to provide a comprehensive evaluation and enable an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.
Please ensure you bring a GP referral to your appointment with Dr Oliver if you intend to lodge a claim with Medicare.
