"There's a profound overlap between an individual's physical state and their mental health," says Dr. Nicole Chiappetta. "Therefore, treating just the physical ailment may not completely be therapeutic. I believe that treating both the mind and the body is most successful." As a rheumatologist, Dr. Chiappetta specializes in autoimmune disorders and bone and joint disorders, which include systemic lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and gout. She became a physician to improve her patients' quality of life.
