“The field of rheumatology is developing rapidly and offering patients greater potential to feel better and have an improved quality of life.”
Dr. Ami Kothari is a board-certified rheumatologist. Her practice philosophy involves listening to patients to provide a comprehensive evaluation and treatment plan and establish a strong doctor-patient relationship. She provides advanced treatments to reduce joint inflammation and help control the workings of the body’s immune system. She encourages patients to be active participants in developing the best treatment strategies as advancements in medicine continue to provide increased therapeutic options. Dr. Kothari also offers ultrasound-guided injections, which pinpoint the area receiving medication. Using this procedure helps decrease procedural pain and increase the effectiveness of treatment.
Dr. Kothari’s care emphasizes listening to patients carefully in order to provide a comprehensive evaluation and individualized treatment plan. Dr. Kothari believes that the more her patients know about their rheumatologic problems and the advances in the therapeutic options available, the better they are enabled to make informed decisions about their treatment. Her treatment plan also includes a strong focus on education, especially on detecting early Rheumatoid Arthritis for early treatment to prevent joint damages and subsequent disability. Dr. Kothari remains current on research and clinical developments in Rheumatology to always provide state-of-the-art therapeutic options to her patients. She strives to make patient visits as stress free as possible and work to ultimately provide the highest level of patient care. Dr. Kothari and her fellow IBJI rheumatologists conduct an active research program providing patients with the opportunity to take part in clinical trials.
