Dr. Tabechian is an adult rheumatologist who directs the crystalline arthritis clinic. He is currently seeing patients in the Henrietta (Red Creek Dr) and Canandaigua offices. He enjoys teaching the full spectrum of trainees (medical students, residents, fellows and colleagues). His interest in rheumatology stems from both a fascination with the spectrum of autoimmune and rheumatic conditions and the enjoyment of providing continuity of care for patients with chronic illnesses.


Dr Tabechian participates in clinical research in rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis and gout. He has expertise in ultrasound guided synovial biopsy and diagnostic ultrasonography.
