Rheumatologist joins medical staff at Adirondack Health

SARANAC LAKE – The newest member of Adirondack Health’s Medical Staff, board-certified and fellowship-trained rheumatologist Dr. Jonathan D. Krant, is currently accepting new patients.

Board certified in Internal Medicine and Rheumatology, Dr. Krant will treat patients at Adirondack Health’s specialty clinic who require care for arthritis and other diseases of the joints, muscles and bones. Some of these conditions may be due to physical overuse and mechanical issues, while in other instances an underlying auto-immune or inflammatory condition may be playing a role.

Adirondack Health’s Rheumatology Clinic is located on the second floor of the Medical Office Building located at 285 Old Lake Colby Road in Saranac Lake.

Dr. Krant received his Medical Degree from University of Massachusetts School of Medicine, and completed residencies in pediatrics at Yale-New Haven Hospital and internal medicine at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center. Dr. Krant completed his clinical Fellowship in Rheumatology at University of California, San Francisco Medical Center.

In addition to his extensive training, Dr. Krant has overseen clinical research in the development of rheumatology treatment with various organizations. He also developed and ran an outpatient clinic providing rheumatology care to more than 6,000 patients.

An avid cyclist, he hopes to enhance his downhill skiing abilities. He also plans to take advantage of the abundant opportunities forclassic Nordic skiing in the area.

“The opportunity to work in such a dramatic setting with a population which is deeply in need of our clinical expertise is a welcome opportunity and personal challenge,” Dr. Krant said. “I welcome all patients, both new and established, to the rheumatology clinic, and look forward to working with the clinical staff of Adirondack Medical Center and its satellite clinics.”

The number for the office of Dr. Krant is 518-897-2491. A referral from a primary care physician or specialist will help simplify the process for starting a patient’s treatment plan. Most insurances accepted.
