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