About Semi

As a rheumatologist, Dr. Ayub specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of problems and diseases such as arthritis that affect the body’s musculoskeletal system, including joints and soft tissues, as well as certain autoimmune diseases, vasculitis, and inherited connective tissue disorders.

Dr. Ayub regularly sees patients who have new or chronic musculoskeletal complaints, including problems in the shoulders, hips, and knee pain. Her areas of particular interest include: reactive arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease-related arthritis, and all other common and uncommon rheumatic diseases.

“I also work with patients who require joint, bursa, and tendon sheath injections to alleviate painful swelling and symptoms,” she explained. “I can also help patients identify rheumatic versus non-rheumatic conditions, along with diagnosis and management of rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout, and systemic Lupus Erythematosus.”
