Biography

Dr. Dondero is experienced in the treatment of a wide variety of rheumatic autoimmune diseases ranging from rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, lupus and dermatomyositis, to gout and osteoarthritis. She believes that the best treatment for patients comes from a collaborative approach, both with the multispecialty physicians required in the treatment of autoimmune diseases and by empowering patients with the knowledge needed to become partners in their own care and recovery.

After completing her undergraduate studies at Cornell University, Dr. Dondero went on to obtain a Master of Biomedical Science, followed by a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine Degree from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. She completed her Residency training in Internal Medicine at St. Michael’s Medical Center in Newark, New Jersey, where she continued on as a teaching attending Board Certified Hospitalist. After an additional year as a teaching attending at St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Paterson, New Jersey, she pursued her passion to become a Rheumatologist at Larkin Hospital in Miami, Florida, where she was Chief Fellow.
