If you, or a member of your family, suffer from arthritis, gout, fibromyalgia, osteoporosis or other musculoskeletal diseases, you can be confident that our rheumatologists at Johns Hopkins Aramco Healthcare (JHAH) have the expertise and experience to help. We specialize in the evaluation and treatment of musculoskeletal and rheumatic diseases, and will work with you and your family to create a comprehensive and individual plan for your care.
Our skilled rheumatology team can treat more than 100 musculoskeletal conditions. We provide a caring environment to support you, and we will create a treatment plan that works for your particular needs and condition.
Infusion rooms – where we administer biological and other anti-rheumatic medications.
Inpatient consultation – for hospitalized patients on request from their attending physicians.
On-site education – support for you and your family from nursing staff.
On-site treatment room – for immunizations and administration of some medications.
Outpatient clinics – the main sites where we provide care, these can be found at various centers across Johns Hopkins Aramco Healthcare. You will usually be referred to our clinics by your Primary Care physician or one of our specialists.
Procedure clinics – our rheumatologists provide aspiration and injection therapy of joints and soft tissues, for conditions such as arthritis, bursitis and tendinitis.
Our Rheumatology Clinic is not a self-referral service, so your Primary Care doctor will make a referral for you if they believe you need a rheumatologist to evaluate your condition.
When you arrive at the Rheumatology Clinic, you will be checked-in, and within five minutes, a rheumatology nurse will carry out an initial clinical screening. Wait times are around 15-20 minutes, and your appointment will usually last 30-40 minutes.
Depending on your condition, you may need to take part in further imaging procedures and/or lab tests. All of these procedures and any follow-up appointments can be arranged by the rheumatology team at the front desk. If you need further diagnostic and/or intervention procedures, our team will talk you through your preparations and answer any questions about your next steps.
Following your care, and depending on your speciﬁc treatment, you may be asked to take part in additional tests, take prescribed medication, or make an appointment for injection or infusion therapy. A follow-up appointment is often arranged, and you may be referred to other health professionals for occupational therapy, physiotherapy or orthotics. Or you may need to see experts in other medical departments within the hospital, such as nephrology, dermatology, respiratory therapy or orthopedics.
At my appointment, I had questions that Dr. Sadiq went all out to find the answers to – even consulting other specialists while I was in his office. I truly appreciate the medical care and advice he provides. I have a chronic disease, and his continued compassion and knowledge are vital to my journey.
Dr. Sadiq always takes the time to discuss any new concerns I have, and explains any results reached from prior tests. He listens and asks pertinent questions about my current condition. Having a chronic disease is hard, but having Dr. Sadiq as my specialist has eased my mind and provided me with excellent care.
