In this episode, we welcome Diana M. Girnita, a rheumatologist and founder and CEO of Rheumatologist OnCall. We discuss the challenges facing patients with arthritis and the shortage of rheumatologists. Despite the growing need for specialized care, geographical and licensure barriers limit access. Diana believes telemedicine is the solution, offering increased access, convenience, and avoiding unnecessary travel for patients in pain. With the number of arthritis patients projected to rise, Diana started her own telemedicine company to offer every American fast, convenient, and safe care. Diana M. Girnita is a rheumatologist and founder and CEO, Rheumatologist OnCall. She can also be reached on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.
