Welcome to Carroll Arthritis, P.A.

Treating the needs of people with arthritis and their families.


Established in 1993, in scenic Carroll County, Maryland, our rheumatology practice prides itself in offering state-of-the-art treatment for the 100+ forms of arthritis, while maintaining that good old-fashioned doctor-patient relationship. It is important to mention that arthritis affects not only the patient, but their families too. We strive to offer a warm and comforting atmosphere. Our staff is attentive to helping patients navigate the confusing (and often frustrating) medical system and we have on-site patient account managers able to help with medical insurance issues that arise.

Our goal is alleviate pain and suffering and to give patients that
chance to enjoy life to its fullest. Arthritis is no longer something that you “just have to live with”.

We treat rheumatic diseases such as:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Psoriatic Arthritis
  • Lupus
  • Lyme Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Ankylosing Spondylitis
  • Plus 100 other types of arthritis

Carroll Arthritis, P.A. has an on-site bone density scanner (DXA),
in-office infusion of both the biologics, and also osteoporosis drugs,
on-site blood drawing and laboratory services.

We are pleased to collaborate with some of the finest internists, specialists, radiologists, physical therapists, pain management specialists, and surgeons in Carroll County and the surrounding counties.
