Rheumatologists specialize in treating medical problems associated with the joints, connective tissues, and autoimmune diseases. This includes conditions such as arthritis, lupus and osteoporosis. At Nantucket Cottage Hospital, our partnership with rheumatologist Dr. Philip Molloy, of Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital Plymouth, brings him to the island once a month to see island patients. A physician referral is required to schedule an appointment with Dr. Molloy. Please have your primary care provider send a referral to the NCH specialty clinic scheduler.
