Specializing in Rheumatology

Member, St. Joseph Medical Group

Dr. Kebede joined St. Joseph from Lancaster Arthritis & Rheumatology Care. She is board certified in both internal medicine and rheumatology.

Dr. Kebede provides advanced treatment for arthritis and inflammatory conditions. Other specialty areas include rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, osteoporosis and gout. In addition, Dr. Kebede offers patients a unique care experience due to her own diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis.

As a patient herself, Dr. Kebede knows the challenges that face people with arthritic disorders. She was diagnosed more than 20 years ago and can relate to the sometimes stressful or daunting journey patients face during testing and treatment. Dr. Kebede believes that her personal experience with rheumatic disease has shaped not only her career choice but also her approach to her patients in the exam room. As a native of the Berks region, she is glad to come back home and help make a difference in the lives of other people with rheumatic disorders.
