New Mexico Physician Referral List
The Arthritis Foundation, Greater Southwest Chapter is pleased to make this physician referral list
available as a public service to anyone seeking the assistance of a physician specializing in the
diagnosis and treatment of arthritis.

This list includes specialists in arthritis called Rheumatologists. These are physicians who specialize
in the diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of arthritis and related disorders of joints, muscles and
bones. Physicians in this specialty are typically trained in such areas as internal medicine or
pediatrics and then complete additional training in rheumatic diseases.

The rheumatologists listed here have advised us that they are licensed and qualified to treat patients
with arthritis, and that they satisfy one of the two additional professional standards below:

1.     Certification by the American Board of Internal Medicine, Sub-Specialty Board of

2.     Completion of two years of sub-specialty training in a recognized Rheumatology program.

*In addition to rheumatologists, many other types of physicians also diagnose and treat arthritis,
including family/primary care physicians, orthopedic surgeons, internists, physiatrists, pediatricians,
and podiatrists.

        The Arthritis Foundation does not evaluate the professional qualifications or
        competence of individual physicians and the Foundation makes no
        representations, implied or otherwise about the competence or qualifications
        of any physicians listed here. The Arthritis Foundation strongly recommends
        that you consult your primary care physician before relying on this list.
