We offer the following rheumatology clinics and programs at our Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) location in Lebanon, New Hampshire.
Adult rheumatology clinics
Adult Rheumatology Clinic
The Rheumatology Clinic operates five days a week, Monday through Friday. We have eight experienced and skillful rheumatologists, two dedicated and compassionate nurse practitioners, and proficient nursing and secretarial staff. The clinic is located at 5C.
Our section has a fellowship program, training the next generation of rheumatologists. Rheumatology fellows are physicians who have completed training in internal medicine who spend two years learning about the practice of Rheumatology. Your visit may be scheduled with both a fellow and a staff rheumatologist.
The Dermatology-Rheumatology Clinic is a monthly clinic that allows you to follow up with providers when you have skin problems as a result of complications from your rheumatologic condition. You are seen at our Heater Road facility in an afternoon clinic.
Fibromyalgia shared medical appointment
We offer a one-time consult in a shared medical appointment for those of you who are suspected of having fibromyalgia. This is an extended visit, lasting 2 to 2.5 hours.
The first part of the visit is spent in private consultation with a rheumatologist or rheumatology nurse practitioner. The remainder of the visit is spent in a group format that focuses on education about this condition and how it is treated.
Recommendations are sent back to your primary care provider. Sessions are held once per month and include 8 to 10 patients.
Ongoing support is available through a monthly support group held at the Women’s Health Resource Center in Lebanon, New Hampshire.
The Pulmonary-Rheumatology Clinic is for patients with complications of their rheumatic disease that affects their lungs. You will see providers from both specialties during the visit.
We have been designated by the Scleroderma Foundation to be a Scleroderma Center of Excellence. To achieve this, we demonstrate that we provide comprehensive care for patients with scleroderma. We teach and conduct research about this condition.
