Many patients ask us if we specialize in some particular rheumatologic disease. We don’t want to avoid the question but a rounded knowledge and ability to treat all conditions is the critical requirement. Rheumatologists must be able to diagnose and treat all rheumatologic conditions. They are not only board certified in rheumatology, but they are also board certified in internal medicine. Rheumatologists, especially our providers, are known for their skills as diagnosticians and have diagnosed illnesses in many diverse fields of medicine.

    Our physicians have done research in many immunologic and rheumatologic fields and continue to be known for their work. Our practice and doctors have specialized in all forms of arthritis including rheumatoid arthritis. Dr. Froncek is particularly skilled in vasculitis related illnesses and sees many patients with Granulomatosis with Polyangitis (also known as GPA and formerly known as Wegener’s Disease). He also has particular interests in Lupus and RA. Dr. Del Giudice had done research on T cells and their roll in immunology. She has done work in Lupus and served as a consultant to Lupus related foundation. She is particularly interested in Psoriatic Arthritis, Anklylosing Spondylilitis, and Osteoporosis. Dr. Parmar, who is coming this summer, has done research on Scleroderma and set up support groups for patients in New Hampshire where she is currently practicing.
