The Lupus Program at Mount Sinai Morningside

The Lupus Program at Mount Sinai Morningside provides comprehensive care for patients with systemic lupus. Occurring on the last Monday afternoon of each month, it is an opportunity for patients to be seen by multiple physicians in one day. This will help reduce the time burden of attending appointments and will help provide better care by allowing multiple physicians to work together. Many of our physicians also conduct research to help better understand and treat lupus. 

We strive to provide exceptional care for all patients with lupus. 

Our services include: 

  • Comprehensive evaluation for patients suspected to have systemic lupus or for those seeking a second opinion regarding their lupus diagnosis. 
  • Long term follow-up care for patients with lupus. 
  • Referral to clinical trials (where appropriate). 
  • Comprehensive care for patients with lupus who have concurrent psychiatric conditions such as depression or anxiety. 
  • Coordination of appointments with Nephrology, Ophthalmology, ENT, Dermatology, OBGYN, Cardiology, Pulmonary and Neurology teams.
