About RI Rheumatology

At RI Rheumatology, Deepan Dalal MD, MPH, RhMSUS, a board-certified rheumatologist and internal medicine physician, and the team provide complete rheumatology care to adults in Cranston, Rhode Island, and throughout Providence County.

The practice was founded in 2021 to provide the most advanced and compassionate care for people with rheumatic diseases. 

The RI Rheumatology team is guided by three core values –– integrity, strong patient-physician relationships, and education. Instead of simply trying to mask uncomfortable symptoms, the providers teach patients how to reduce inflammation and improve mobility through healthy lifestyle changes, preventive care, and minimally invasive procedures. 

RI Rheumatology is conveniently located and has advanced diagnostics and therapeutics onsite. The in-house infusion center offers intravenous biologics, ultrasound-guided joint injections, and other outpatient treatments.

People from Providence and the surrounding areas regularly visit RI Rheumatology to treat various diseases, including gout, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, and vasculitis.

Because most rheumatic illnesses are chronic, the team develops long-term treatment plans emphasizing regular exercise, healthy eating, routine checkups, and anti-inflammatory medications.
