Dr. Weijia Yuan is an Assistant Attending Rheumatologist focused on working together with patients to make a positive impact on all aspects of their lives, but specifically to liberate them from the uncertainty of rheumatic disease.

Dr. Yuan specializes in treating patients in an undifferentiated state, who have trouble identifying their illness due to the spectrum nature of autoimmune diseases. Autoimmune diseases are often an unfortunate combination of "vulnerable genes" and environmental triggers which lead to chronic inflammation. Because of the intermittent and vague nature of chronic inflammatory symptoms, patients often start to wonder if their symptoms are just "in the head" after years of not finding an answer. 

Even as an internal medicine resident, Dr. Yuan realized that making the right diagnosis alone can often be a great relief for patients who suffered from long-term debilitating symptoms. Since then, her passion for rheumatology has grown as she sees how chronic autoimmune inflammation can deeply impact or even take over a person's life. Dr. Yuan’s priority during the clinical evaluation is to have an open mind, listen and encourage patients to share additional clues to assist diagnosis and treatment.

Through the practice of rheumatology, Dr. Yuan has come to understand that lifestyle change is so powerful, yet often overlooked. She has adopted a holistic approach to treatments that look at the mind-body as a whole, and has had much success in patients modifying their lifestyle to address the root cause of their autoimmunity.
