Specialties

Dr. Pietro V Rocca has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Outstanding doctor

I developed pain in my knuckes and balls of my feet. It came out of the blue. I saw a chiropractor who told me my spine was out of alignment and started manipulations. All the while, I got worse. I saw an orthopedist who gave me shots in some of my knuckles. This helped but only for a few days. Then, I found Dr. Rocca. He correctly diagnosed me on the first visit, started medicine and within TWO DAYS I was much better. His receptionist is great too.

Outstanding Physician

I'm 62 years old and have been to about a dozen different doctors in my life. This guy is one of the best. He is patient, doesn't make you feel rushed, explains everything very clearly and seems to care. He's got this great receptionist too.

A Very Thorough Doc

In a lot of offices, you feel like a number. You get pushed through the office as quickly as possible. Not here. Dr. Rocco spends his time listening to you, examines you AND reviews all the medical records. He is very thorough.

An Excellent Doctor

I have known Dr. Rocca for about fifteen years. I have seen him because I have lupus. He has taken excellent care of me. What I really love about him is the fact that he is not an alarmist; a lot of other doctors I see are always panicking: "This is your lupus....Your lupus is flaring.....It's got to be your lupus" etc. But you know what? They don't have a clue what they're talking about. At first, these other doctors would freak me out but they no longer do. Now, when one of my doctors goes ballistic and blames this or that on my lupus, I pick up the phone, make an appointment with Dr. Rocca, bring him my tests and he tells me what's REALLY going on. He's very calming and I love him.
