Mark C.

Dr. Frattalone is a brilliant and caring doctor. She diagnosed my seronegative rheumatoid arthritis and developed a treatment plan which has kept it under control. She is always kind and takes whatever time is needed when we meet. Her care coordinator, Heather C, is also a very patient and caring individual who goes out of her way to put you at ease during your appointment and makes sure you fully understand the follow-up care instructions before you leave the clinic. I could not be more pleased with the care I have received.
