He also studies how comorbidities/multimorbidity influence disease course and patient outcomes in RA. Clinically, Dr. England is a rheumatologist focused on the care of patients with inflammatory arthritis (including RA, psoriatic arthritis, gout) and autoimmune lung diseases (such as RA-interstitial lung disease). He also utilizes musculoskeletal ultrasound to diagnose and treat rheumatic diseases.
