Rheumatology & Joint Disorders

ECHN is happy to announce that it has expanded rheumatology services to Eastern Connecticut.

Rheumatology focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of the most prevalent chronic diseases in America that cause disability. These diseases are characterized by inflammation and progressive physical impairment of joints and soft tissues. The service is dedicated to the diagnosis and management of rheumatic diseases.

We have expertise in over 100 diseases, which include systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, osetoarthritis, gout, bursitis, vasculitis, and osteoporosis.

Timothy Quan, MD, Barbara Kage, MD and Yasmin Kassam, MD are board certified Rheumatologists who work closely with physicians from other specialties to ensure comprehensive management of these illnesses. In addition to medical consultations, our rheumatology physicians offer infusion therapy for autoimmune diseases and osteoporosis.
