Dr. Geraldina Lionetti is a pediatric rheumatologist who focuses on improving outcomes for children with rheumatic diseases through comprehensive evaluations and individualized treatment plans. Her goal is to help her patients enter adulthood unhindered by their disease.

In addition to caring for patients on site at UCSF, Lionetti goes to see patients throughout Northern California who are unable to travel. She also runs outreach clinics to ensure adequate access to care and is developing a telemedicine program to improve patient and provider access to specialized care.

As an educator, Lionetti strives to give pediatric residents a strong foundation for care of children with rheumatic diseases.
