If you suspect that one of your patients may be suffering from myositis, we encourage you to refer your patient to the Myositis Center immediately.

Patients who have studies done elsewhere often require repeat testing when they visit the Myositis Center. For this reason, we highly recommend that all testing be done on our campus.
