I have worked with Dr. Straniero for the last 18 years. He is an excellent physician who is willing to take the time to listen to and understand his patients. I have no doubt that it is because of his efforts that I am still employed while dealing with my chronic illness.

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!
