      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Papadopoulos' Care Philosophy

      I chose rheumatology as a specialty because I find inflammatory and autoimmune conditions interesting. Some of the conditions are treated readily but many rheumatologic conditions are chronic diseases requiring long term management with systemic immunotherapy. I enjoy getting to know my patients and offering available treatments to improve their symptoms and quality of life.
