SVH: Female Rheumatologists

 

Introducing Dr. Diane Narhi

A Rheumatologist and Internist, Dr. Narhi has been treating women for all forms of connective tissue diseases since 1983. “I like my patients to become partners in their own care,” she says. “So I try to educate them about their illness.”

Dr. Narhi’s other expertise is osteoporosis. Her practice includes state-of-the-art technology for measuring bone density. “With early detection, osteoporosis can be prevented,” she says. “Here, I can test the level of risk in minutes, then decide what action needs to be taken, if any.”
