Are you looking for a Rheumatologist?
A Rheumatologist is a medical professional who diagnoses and treats diseases that may affect someone’s joints, tendons, ligaments, bones, or muscles. Patients visit Rheumatologists when they experience persistent joint pain or stiffness. Often, these specialists work with people who have systemic autoimmune diseases that cause inflammation, swelling, and arthritis. Rheumatologists differ from Orthopaedists as they consider every organ system when looking for the cause of symptoms and do not perform surgery. Some of the conditions which Rheumatologists treat include Osteoporosis, Achilles tendinitis, Bursitis, and Rheumatoid arthritis.
Meet Dr. Jeffrey Alper!
Dr. Jeffrey Alper is a distinguished Rheumatologist with over 25 years of experience. He started his own practice in Naples, FL, over ten years ago and leads his clinical team in providing excellent comprehensive care to patients with inflammatory diseases. Dr. Alper specializes in diagnosing and treating inflammatory conditions such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, Gout, Osteoporosis, and Lupus. He and his fellow experts are members of the American Arthritis and Rheumatology Associates, where they work with the top rheumatologists across the country and learn about treatment options for patients. The practice aims to provide patients with detailed information and guidance for their medical decisions and be a support system when they are managing and healing disease management.
Dr. Alper’s favorite part about being a doctor is interacting and forming connections with his patients. He often has to diagnose complex and unpleasant illnesses that can be painful and affect a person’s everyday life. Autoimmune disorders develop when the immune system can no longer control the switches to turn on and off certain body functions, and there is excessive inflammation. Dr. Alper’s goal is to see his patients improve with the help of modern-day therapeutics. Outside of work, he values spending time with his family and working out.
