Community Care Rheumatology
For many of us at Community Care Physicians (CCP), taking care of people isn’t just the career we have today; it’s the passion we’ve had our entire lives. We are proud to be an independent multi-specialty medical group in the Capital Region, NY - and we are truly independent. Although we pride ourselves on our relationships with the many hospitals and health plans in the region, we are owned and governed by our physicians; physicians of multiple specialties who are all practicing medicine and have a pulse on the front lines of healthcare.
CCP’s business model is comprised of decentralized clinical and operational decision-making at the practices level supported by a central administrative infrastructure working in partnership with the practices to relieve the physicians of administrative burdens and to gain economies of scale. The highest priority of everyone at CCP is to deliver top quality and efficient health care to our patients and doing so in a manner that promotes professional satisfaction with our physicians and staff.
CCP is built on relationships – relationships with our patients, our colleagues, and our communities. CCP has over 30 different specialties within the organization and touches every three to four people in the greater Capital Region. Our extensive primary care network of over 40 offices serves as a portal of entry into Neurology and our other integrated subspecialty offices. As one organization, our practitioners are connected and regularly interact to share best practices, develop optimal processes and innovative ideas, teach each other, and create the best experience for our staff and patients.
CCP Rheumatologists are specialist physicians who have expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions and systemic autoimmune diseases, called rheumatic diseases. Community Care Rheumatology diagnoses and treats all types of arthritis and joint conditions, as well as a variety of other musculoskeletal, autoimmune and connective tissue disorders. We offer two convenient locations in Malta and Saratoga.
CCP Rheumatology offers special on-site services including:
- In-office infusions in Malta to provide the most advanced treatments for patients requiring intravenous infusion therapy.
- Joint injections and arthrocentesis to remove fluid or put medication into joints in order to relieve joint pain or swelling.
- Skin biopsies to evaluate potential underlying conditions to help with diagnosis and care of autoimmune diseases.
- Epidermal nerve fiber density testing to evaluate any damage to nerve fibers which may cause conditions like fibromyalgia.
Whether you call us Community Care Physicians or CCP, we are known in the area for our commitment to quality patient care, incorporating advanced technologies, integrating clinical research, participating in community activities, and ever-improving your healthcare experience.
