A Note from Dr. Krant

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I prefer to adopt a holistic perspective in patient care, whether it be a combination approach to inflammatory polyarthritis (NSAIDs, DMARDs, Biologics, glucocorticoids) or behavioral change incorporating weight reduction, gabapentanoids, SSRIs and other adjuvant therapies used to change self-perception and pain thresholds which are life limiting. I work closely with the other medical specialties including dermatology, pulmonary and renal medicine, and emphasize clear communication and appreciation of alternative approaches to problem-solving. I look forward to serving the Monadnock Region.”
