I'm in my thirties and have been seeing Rheumatologists for half my life. Of all of the ones that I've seen Dr Straniero is by far the most thorough one I've seen. He has a great bedside manor and is very understanding of my condition.

I've been going to Dr. Straniero for almost 20 years. Great doctor. So much so that I live less than 20 miles from Fort Wayne and I still drive to Mishawaka!
