What Is Our Experience?

     Dr. Franco has extensive experience in the treatment of rheumatic diseases in general and in particular with the rheumatologic disorders triggered/caused by infectious agents. Dr. Franco has treated several thousand patients with different rheumatic diseases over more than twenty years with good results. Approximately 80% of RA patients do respond with variable degrees of improvement. Dr. Franco estimates that up to 1/3 of patients with RA can go into remission within five years. For further information, see study conclusions.

Is Specialty Care More Expensive?*

     You may be surprised to learn that specialized care may save time and money and reduce the severity of disease. A rheumatologist is specially trained to spot clues in the medical history and physical examination. The proper tests done early may save money in the long run. Prompt diagnosis and specially tailored treatment often save money and buy time in treating the disease.
