Welcome to AARA

We are committed to providing quality rheumatologic care for the people of Arizona.

Arizona Arthritis and Rheumatology Associates is a private single specialty medical practice with nine locations across Arizona; six in the Phoenix metropolitan communities, better known as the Valley of the Sun, and a clinic in Flagstaff, Prescott and Tucson. Our expertise lies in the diagnosis and management of disorders wherein immune system aberrations result in unnecessary and harmful inflammation in various organs of the human body.
