Welcome to North Fulton Rheumatology

North Fulton Rheumatology diagnoses and treats patients suffering from various types of arthritis and other autoimmune or connective tissue disorders. We are committed to providing comprehensive and compassionate care, and we use the highest, most progressive medical standards.

This practice takes the time to listen, so we can accurately diagnose rheumatic diseases and treat them early and effectively, to prevent joint deformities and progression.

We want our patients to have lesser symptoms and achieve the best function and quality out of life. We take great pride in the relationships we establish with our patients and our ability to give a personal approach to difficult problems.

Our board-certified physician, Dr. Ciela Lopez-Armstrong, is qualified to manage all autoimmune and connective tissue diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, systematic lupus, scleroderma, vasculitis, gout, Sjogrens, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis and fibromyalgia. We also treat bone disorders, such as osteoporosis, osteopenia, and other musculoskeletal disorders.
