Scleroderma is best treated by a rheumatologist.
Other subspecialists such as a gastroenterologist may need to be called in to manage complications of scleroderma such difficulty swallowing.

In brief: No
Rheumatoogists would treat scleroderma.
In houston, the immunologists do not tend to treat disease but do more research. Allergists/immunologists will typically not treat scleroderma and will refer to rheumatologists.
