We treat you, not just your disease.
Premier Rheumatology

At Premier Rheumatology of Alabama, our physicians treat your disease by focusing on you. By providing comprehensive diagnostic services and state-of-the-art methods of treatment for a broad range of autoimmune diseases, our goal is to get you back to work or play, including the activities that bring you joy.

With more than 80 years of collective experience, our team brings patience, empathy and understanding to your treatment because our providers consider the emotional impact of your disease. We encourage you to share your concerns, ask questions and openly discuss your treatment options. Open, honest discussion allows us to get to know you better, understand your symptoms, learn your family history and accurately diagnose your condition. Having a clear picture of your situation allows us to formulate a treatment plan that you can easily follow and ultimately enhances your quality of life.


As experts in the diagnosis and treatment of chronic inflammatory diseases beyond arthritis, we also treat chronic bone and joint conditions, and a broad range of conditions, including connective tissue diseases that affect ligaments and tendons (may involve the skin and other organs) and autoimmune diseases that attack healthy tissue.


We treat more than 100 different types of arthritis and autoimmune diseases, but specialize in the following:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)
  • Lupus
  • Gout
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sjogren’s syndrome


Our providers strongly believe that treatment for your diagnosis can take many forms, including diet/nutritional, weight loss, physical treatment (PT), pharmacological treatment (prescription treatment for pain and inflammation), and the latest state-of-the-art biological treatments available (infusion therapy).


The goal is to help you become more active, do the things you enjoy and live life again as you should. All these rheumatic condition treatments ultimately help:

  • Alleviate pain
  • Reduce inflammation and relieve swelling
  • Diminish joint stiffness
  • Prevent ongoing joint damage
  • Reduce cells that activate lupus
  • Reduce uric acid (for gout)
  • Slow down an overactive immune system
  • Block production of pro-inflammatory biochemicals
  • Inhibit immune cell activity that causes inflammation

We also offer the convenience of having our own digital x-ray, an infusion suite and phlebotomy lab onsite which makes it easy for you to receive a full spectrum of treatment right in our office.
