Our Patients

I was referred to Piedmont Arthritis Clinic by another doctor for Psoriatic Arthritis, and have been a patient there for 18 years. They have seen me through some difficult times with my condition. The care I have received there along with a healthier lifestyle has improved the way I feel. Everyone at Piedmont Arthritis Clinic is very courteous, efficient and there is no waiting. The staff is very caring and interested in who you are. You are not just another patient.”   – J. Glassman, Landrum SC
