About Us


Welcome to Arthritis and Rheumatic Diseases

Our board-certified rheumatologists, Dr. Elena F. Flagg M.D. and Dr. Laila Rahbar, M.D., along with nurse practitioners Misty Mason and Marylou Vallone, are dedicated to providing state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic approaches in a friendly, efficient, and professional environment. Rheumatology is a medical specialty that is devoted to the evaluation and treatment of arthritis and other rheumatic diseases which may affect joints, muscles, skin and other connective tissues. Many of these conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus involve an overactive immune system.

Along with our certified clinical and administrative staff, our aim is to provide excellent medical care in a comfortable facility that offers comprehensive musculoskeletal services including a Laboratory that is CLIA Certified, Bone Densitometry (DXA), X-ray and an Outpatient Infusion Center.
