Pankti Reid, MD, MPH

Assistant Professor of Medicine

Pankti Reid, MD, MPH, is a highly skilled rheumatologist whose practice primarily focuses on evaluation and management of immune-related adverse events (irAEs) where cancer patients experience autoimmune conditions as a side effect of their cancer treatment. Dr. Reid also provides general rheumatology care and has expertise with the following conditions:

  • Checkpoint inhibitor toxicities (immune-related adverse events)
  • Inflammatory Arthritis
  • Inflammatory Myositis
  • Vasculitis
  • Lupus
  • Scleroderma
  • Sicca Syndrome
  • Polymyalgia Rheumatica

In an effort to improve care for her patients, Dr. Reid established a robust immune-related adverse event (irAE) clinical infrastructure that includes a clinic, an electronic referral system and an interdisciplinary clinical consortium. Additionally, she is developing an irAE curriculum aimed at improving training in this new area of medicine for internal medicine residents and oncology and rheumatology fellows.

Dr. Reid has also led multiple clinical trials studying the use of rheumatic medications for COVID-19 hyperinflammation.

Her research has been published in several respected, peer-reviewed journals, including the Journal of the American Medical Association and Journal of Immunotherapy for Cancer.

About Our Star Ratings and Comments:

Randomly selected patients are sent patient satisfaction surveys after their visits. We get thousands of survey responses each year. The responses are used to improve patient experience and recognize staff members for the care they provide. Patient survey responses are also used to make star ratings for each provider.

For the star ratings and comments, all feedback on the provider web page is posted as it was given from patients. Comments that do not apply, risk patient privacy, or are not appropriate are not posted. Star ratings and comments come from a number of survey questions. A star rating is not given if a provider only has a small number of survey responses.
