About Tennessee Rheumatology

Tennessee Rheumatology is the private medical practice of Bob LaGrone. Bob serves Tennessee, Kentucky, and Alabama. His mission is the early diagnosis and management of patients with inflammatory and autoimmune conditions, arthritis, and metabolic bone diseases such as (but not limited to) rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, ankylosing spondylitis, vasculitis, scleroderma, gout, and osteoporosis. His goal is to provide a compassionate environment, with comprehensive and goal-oriented care for these often chronic conditions, and to use the full range of diagnostic and therapeutic tools to achieve this goal. Employing medication, injections, infusion therapies, physical therapies, and his in–house pharmacy, he strives to help his patients achieve remission when possible, and to live healthy, productive lives.
