Meet Dr. Elizabeth Ortiz
Dr. Ortiz has a unique talent for making the complex, understandable.
She is passionate about empowering others to feel comfortable in the often confusing Rheumatology world. This passion led her to build Connected Rheumatology, PLLC. In addition to providing direct patient care through her clinic, she provides online education to those struggling to better understand their condition.
With over 10 years experience in Rheumatology, she has cared for thousands of patients with conditions ranging from complex cases of lupus (SLE) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA), to more common, but often misunderstood conditions, such as osteoarthritis (OA) and fibromyalgia.
She is especially interested in the power of lifestyle changes and complimentary therapies and how they can be used to supplement state-of-the-art therapy.
