Dr. Diana Girnita


Early 2020, in the middle of the pandemic, I founded Rheumatologist OnCall to give patients easier and faster access to specialized care.

Did you know that in the United States, the typical waiting time for a rheumatology consultation can be between 3 to 6 months?

Being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease or inflammatory arthritis can be very stressful and can lead to permanent organ damage so time is the essence.


Use your phone, tablet or computer to SCHEDULE NOW.

My mission is ‘patient-centered’ practice where integrative, compassionate and evidence based medicine will set you on the way to get better.

I am excited to meet new patients, share your journey and develop a long-term relationship.

Dr. G was incredible. She listened to my health history and concerns thoroughly before offering her expertise and opinion. Her approach to health is wholistic as it encompasses all aspects of health including nutrition, sleep, meditation, exercise…I felt extremely comfortable sharing with her and appreciated her use of experience and knowledge. She was really able to connect with my apprehension for pharmaceutical therapy and eased my anxiety with personal experience and concrete data. She followed up with an email that contained referenced articles along with a phone call. She is an excellent human doing great work as a physician.

I found Dr. Girnita to be very knowledgeable and caring. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a professional Rheumatologist, a second opinion on their current medication or cannot obtain an appointment with a Rheumatologist for a few months. I regret not getting on medication as soon as I was diagnosed 30 years ago to stop the disease from progressing.

Dr. Girnita is not your typical doctor. She spends an entire hour with you, asking clarifying questions, going over your medical history to understand your medical issues and come up with a treatment plan that is highly customized for you. She spends time before the appointment as well as after to get to the root of your issues. Dr. Girnita’s focus is on getting your health back on track not on just addressing your symptoms. Her approach is integrative, and teaches her patients how to change their lifestyles to get healthy. Her focus is her patients. I had the privilege to meet Dr. Girnita recently, and I am so grateful to have her as my doctor. She had addressed all my concerns while looking for the root cause of my health issues. Getting an appointment is very easy and you never have to wait months to see her. I highly recommend her services to everyone who is looking to fix the cause of their issues, and not just a band-aid for their symptoms. Dr. Girnita is the doctor of the future.

This doctor is absolutely wonderful! The local rheumatologist wouldn’t get me in for over three months and she got me in with almost no notice. she was very patient and answered all my questions and I can’t say enough good things about her.

One day, I received a call from my doctor and he told me that I had mixed connective tissue disorder and lupus. And then… He waited a month to see me. so I was left with unanswered questions and a worry unlike no other. How could I have lupus? I had no symptoms? What was MCTD exactly? Well…After getting diagnosed with Mixed Connective Tissue Disorder I did my research. I came across Dr. Girnita’s page while doing my research. After reading up on her, and everything she says, I made an appointment. Let me tell you something, having someone so personable, helpful and knowledgeable was exactly what I needed. She helped me understand and explained my test results. My anxiety level went from a 10 to a 0 after my appointment with her. Even my husband noticed a difference. Thank you Dr. Girnita for taking time to help me understand, review my results and talk to me as a person and not just a patient. I am forever grateful for you. -Mary

Wonderful experience with Dr Diana, she takes time the patient to help them with their health issues. Very easy to schedule an appointment and she answered all the questions that I had, you can have direct contact with her through the app and she explains in details all your lab results instead of just a quick call from the nurse as the other doctors do. Highly recommended.

Diana is exceptionally caring and will go out of her way to make sure you get the best care.
After getting a scary test result from a primary care doctor and was informed that it could take 6 months to a year before a local rheumatologist could see me, Dr. G was able to see me within a week and spent a lot of time examining me and addressing concerns raised by the test. Very professional and compassionate. All doctors should be this way.

During a most difficult time while searching for a doctor who could help me is diagnosing my condition, Dr. Girnita came to my rescue. She immediately recognized what my condition was, and gave me the confidence in understanding my disease and the knowledge I needed in how to address my condition. Without her help I would probably still be in pain and still searching for help. I will always be grateful for her expertise, but more importantly, for her true compassion and empathy for others she displays when she interacts with her patients. Thank you Dr.Girnita for your continual support for all us in our time of need.

I’ve had gout for 8 yrs and Dr. Girnita is the first doctor to address the cause, in correlation with a full 360 view of my overall health, including X-RAYs to see if my joints have been damaged. Now I have a treatment strategy to lower my uric acid rather than just take colchicine. Dr. Girnita’s practice has a lucrative and affordable business model. I am grateful to be in Dr. Girnita’s care.
