Rheumatology Services

Rheumatology is a medical specialty devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of certain autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. Dr. Howard M. Busch started the Family Arthritis Center in 1987 and has built a tremendous following through his diagnostic skills and compassionate treatment of his patients. Dr. Dehghanpisheh, PhD, M.D., began his work at the Family Arthritis Center in 2005, and with his background in immunology and research has been a valuable addition to our staff.  The Family Arthritis Center is also fortunate to have highly skilled Nurse Practitioners on staff.

To better serve you,our offices operate by appointment only. If medically necessary, we will make every effort to see patients the same day. Please call 561-798-8184 to schedule an appointment in the Western Communities and 561-747-1987 to schedule an appointment in Jupiter.
