You’ve waited weeks — or longer — for your rheumatologist appointment, so it’s vital to make the most of every minute. Get prepared for those important conversations with your specialist by watching these videos. MySpondylitisTeam has created a series of sample video conversations between someone recently diagnosed with nonradiographic ankylosing spondyloarthritis (nr-axSpA) and their rheumatologist. It’s an insider look at in-depth discussions to help you have the best possible conversation with your rheumatologist. Watching these videos will show you how to ask the most important questions and make the most out of your time with your rheumatologist.

    Are your questions among those frequently asked by people with nr-axSpA? Watch rheumatologist Dr. Siddharth Tambar answer the most common questions he hears from his patients. Then learn more about next steps after your rheumatology appointment.
