I have tried for weeks to reach someone in person and only can leave messages which aren't returned. Dr. Diola is NOT the kindest most patient man nor does he offer suggestions for other treatments in dealing with arthritis.

What a warm, caring doctor. My RA was just diagnosed so he was very good at explaining all treatments available and why he chose the one he did. His staff is just as nice!
