Is it normal to be developing arthritis in my fingers at 30, or should I be looking for a new doctor?

One finger has been achey, down right painful in one joint, and its swollen and warm. After waiting for it to go away for a week I finally went to the doctor.
He squeezed my finger a few times, said its probably a little arthritis, told me to take ibuprofen, and left.
Ive had issues with him before but it took me a long time to find a doctor that speaks English as well as he does.
If arthritis in the fingers is not unheard of at 30, what should I do about it? My fingers are quite handy, I'd like to keep using them.
