Meet Haley, a spunky 11 year old patient who was diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.

Phoenix Children’s is the home to the only two board-certified pediatric rheumatologists in Arizona. Treatment from a pediatric-trained rheumatologist gives kids the best chance because rheumatic diseases behave differently in a child’s body than an adult’s. And our staff only work with children, in a kid-friendly, medical home.

Previously, Haley’s doctors were just trying to manage her pain. Since coming to see pediatric rheumatologist, Dr. Michael Shishov, her mom looks forward to Haley’s next 80 years of life, and the fact that her quality of life is will be better.
