AOCC has a staff that takes pride in what they do.

When AOCC was founded in 2000 Drs. Ahmad Kashif and Gary Maniloff working at the Nalle Clinic and Drs. Robert Kipnis and Andrew Laster of Presbyterian Healthcare Associates joined to establish an independent rheumatology practice.

Since 2000 AOCC has grown tremendously. We have 8 Rheumatologists, a Nurse Practitioner, 2 Physician Assistants and an in-house laboratory.

Here is our support staff that makes up an integral part of the success of AOCC.
