Piedmont Arthritis Clinic PA was founded in 1979 by Jeffrey G. Lawson, MD, as a private medical practice specializing in rheumatology. Piedmont Arthritis Clinic is an independently owned and operated medical practice dedicated to the treatment of arthritis and other autoimmune diseases. We are located on the 4th Floor of the St. Francis Outpatient Center Medical Offices at 3 St. Francis Drive in Greenville, SC.

A recognized leader in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, our staff includes four physicians – all board certified in rheumatology with special interest in rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, lupus, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. Our physicians are nationally recognized for their research and writing, and have delivered numerous lectures on subjects including ‘Arthritis in the Elderly’, ‘What Type of Arthritis Do I Have?’ and ‘Fundamentals of Systemic Lupus Nephritis’.

Piedmont Arthritis Clinic houses diagnostic equipment including a lower and upper extremity MRI machine and a bone densitometer machine. We also have an on-site IV Drug Infusion suite for the convenience of our patients.

Since 1976, we have worked with thousands of men, women and young people on prevention techniques and successful treatments for rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, psoriatic arthritis and other chronic inflammatory illnesses.

Piedmont Arthritis Clinic is helping lead the way in research to find safe and effective treatments for arthritis and auto immune diseases.
