Dr. Andrew Germanovich
Pain Management 13 years experience
Rheumatologist: Is the kind of dr. Your mother should see for detailed exam and blood work for inflammatory conditions that involve all the joints in the body.
Dr. Pavel Conovalciuc
Family Medicine 23 years experience
Bone pain: She will need a full history and a comprehensive physical. Her doc should go over all body symptoms to make sure he's not missing a point. This may be plain age related arthritis (osteoarthritis) or a more complex problem.
