Dr. Valente's Care Philosophy

Because of my tenure at the Mayo Clinic, I endorse the enduring Mayo Clinic philosophy that the patient always comes first. I am an expert in rheumatic disorders and osteoporosis. My team focuses on inflammatory diseases. Patients get a comprehensive evaluation, state-of-the-art therapy, and a visit summary. We support patient self-management. We communicate immediately with other providers. It is my pleasure to introduce the most effective rheumatology practice anywhere.

in North Platte, NE |
Dr. Valente spent a lot of time with me going over my history and evaluating my problems. He didn't talk in circles around any subject but was straight to the point which is my preferred method of communication. He didn't talk down but used words that I could understand. I can't say that I wanted to be there but since I got this disease, I'm just glad that I have a doctor who is giving me the guidance that I needed.

I went to see Dr. Valente re: continuing muscle and joint pain. He is a life saver. My quality of life was so low and now with the appropriate medications, I feel alive again. Thanks to Dr. Valente!! He is extremely intelligent and knows his medicine.
