In order to diagnose psoriatic arthritis, Dr. Kothari will examine the affected area and perform a series of tests including X-rays and MRI scans. He will then create a treatment plan that typically involves medications. While there is no ultimate cure for psoriatic arthritis, with Dr. Kothari’s help, you can learn to manage your condition and even go into remission.
