Welcome to MTRheumatology, the Rheumatology practice of Dr. Robert McNutt, MD in Helena, Montana. This office specializes in the area of medicine that deals with a variety medical problems that can be loosely defined as “arthritis and related disorders”. Fortunately, this internal medicine specialty has many avenues available to diagnose and successfully treat the wide range of ways our bodies can be affected by these problems. This includes the newest and very exciting use of musculoskeletal ultrasound technology where destructive changes in joints can be identified much earlier than with x-ray so treatment can be adjusted for the degree of arthritis present. This technology also allows needle guidance so injections can be delivered very accurately.
At MTRheumatology, we work to provide these services with less rush and to appreciate the story that each patient brings so that the understanding of the person, the disease (or dis-ease) that affects them and the treatments we have available can come together for a satisfactory resolution. Though disease is not comfortable, the approach to finding help should be comforting and it is my intention that you find that in this office.
THIS RHEUMATOLOGY PRACTICE WILL CLOSE SOON
Dear patient of MTRheumatology:
My seven years of rheumatology practice in Helena, five in private practice, will soon end in retirement.
We have some time to help you transition care. Appointments are available to see you, if not already scheduled. October 14th for those with private insurance. September 30th for Medicare.
Your personal practitioner is a proper source for referral to another rheumatologist should continuing care be necessary.
When you come in for a visit with us we will provide you with a CD of your health record, adjust any medications and check lab as needed to be sure that you will have a comfortable length of time to safely find new care. A CD of your record will be provided by mail if that is your choice.
Deb, Moira and I thank you for allowing us to work with you in your rheumatology health care needs.
Best wishes for good health
Robert McNutt, M.D.
