Winter 2018 - We welcome our new partner Dr. Seema Goyal!!
Dr. Mullins and Dr. Sharma are excited to announce that Dr. Seema Goyal will join our practice in March! Dr. Goyal is board certified in adult rheumatology. Before joining the Center for Rheumatic Diseases, Dr. Goyal served for 3 years as Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Rheumatology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in Bronx, NY, then several years as a rheumatologist with the Princeton Medical Group in Princeton, NJ. Dr. Goyal is an active member of the American College of Rheumatology.
NEW SHINGLES VACCINE - The new shingles vaccine (Shingrix) is recommended for everyone age 50 years and older, even if you have had the older vaccine (Zovirax). The new vaccine is also strongly recommended for patients taking biologic therapy such as Enbrel, Humira, Remicade, Orencia, or other biologics. Shingrix is NOT a live-virus vaccine, so it is safe in patients on biologic therapy.
We congratulate Dr. Sharma on being named Medical Honoree for the Walk to Cure Arthritis in Metro DC that took place last spring, and for being the 2017 recipient of the Marriott Lifetime Achievement Award.
