About Nicole M. Ridolfi, DO

Dr. Ridolfi was inspired to pursue medicine when watching her father face an illness and observing the role of the doctors at his bedside. She was fascinated by how thorough the doctors were and what a profound difference they could make in her dad’s life. It was this moment that she knew she wanted to also make a difference and serve others as a physician.

She enjoys the field of rheumatology as she has the opportunity to treat a spectrum of diseases including arthritis and auto-immune conditions. As a trained doctor of osteopathy, Dr. Ridolfi approaches each patient as a whole person – treating the mind, body and soul. She values the relationships she builds with her patient and as she says, “I treat my patients like family. We build a close bond as we collaborate to address their medical concerns and I enjoy helping them meet their health goals.”

Dr. Ridolfi is also trained is musculoskeletal ultrasound which allows her the benefit of showing her patients what is happening with their disease while they are in her office. This is not only convenient for patients but also empowers them to learn more about their body.

A graduate of Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences, Dr. Ridolfi completed both her internal medicine residency and rheumatology fellowship at University of California, Irvine.

When she is away from the office, Dr. Ridolfi enjoys spending time with family and walking with her dogs.
