Randolph Sanchez, M.D., rheumatologist

Mountainside Medical Group has announced that Randolph Sanchez, M.D., has joined the practice, adding rheumatology to the medical group’s specialty offerings.

Randolph Sanchez, M.D., treats a variety of autoimmune diseases in adult patients that can affect the bones, joints, and muscles, causing pain, swelling and deformity. Dr. Sanchez strives to deliver patient-centered care, where decisions are made jointly after considering a patient’s personal lifestyle and experience. “My goal is to focus on the care of the person, not just the disease,” Dr. Sanchez explains.  “A disease should not define a person. Focusing on my patient’s needs in the context of their disease will often lead to the best outcomes.”

The well-being of others and advocating for his patients are at the heart of Dr. Sanchez’s love for medicine.  “Like most healthcare providers, I was drawn to medicine because I find my purpose in caring for others.” Dr. Sanchez shares. “My initial love for internal medicine allowed me the foundation to explore specialization. I did not choose rheumatology – the specialty chose me. We are in what I call the ‘Renaissance of Rheumatology.’ The field is evolving with revolutionary treatments, and I am humbled to serve the community in this specialty.”

“I am pleased to welcome Dr. Sanchez to Mountainside,” says Tim O’Brien, chief executive officer at Mountainside Medical Center. “We are committed to adding physicians to our medical group who treat the ‘whole person’ and provide total care in our community.”

Dr. Sanchez received his medical degree from Ibero-American University (UNIBE) in the Dominican Republic. He completed his internal medicine residency at SUNY Downstate Medical Center, in Brooklyn, NY. He is fellowship-trained in rheumatology from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA.  His special interests include lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriatic arthritis.

Outside of medical practice, Dr. Sanchez enjoys live music in a variety of genres and playing the guitar.  He is a self-professed “foodie,” and welcomes recommendations for new restaurants or recipes to cook at home.

Dr. Sanchez will see patients in the Mountainside Medical Office Building located at 311 Bay Avenue in Glen Ridge. New patients are welcome and may visit www.mountainsidemedicalgroup.com to make an appointment or call 973-78-4777. Virtual care and in-person visits are available.
