About Stratos Christianakis, MD

Stratos Christianakis, MD, is board certified in internal medicine and specializes in rheumatology and dermatology. As a rheumatologist, Dr. Christianakisis focused on providing high-quality patient care. He dedicates time to training future physicians, as well. 


His clinical practice focuses on treating patients with complex autoimmune diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, spondyloarthropathies, systemic lupus, vasculitis and inflammatory myositis. These conditions are also the focus of his research interests. 


Dr. Christianakis isproud to be “a born-and-raised SoCal kid,” graduating from Burbank High School and spending his entire undergraduate and medical school experience at USC. He considers teaching future doctors an honor and a way to serve his community. 

I approach the care of my patients as I would approach the care of my wife and two kids. It is really as simple as that. 


The shared decision-making that is cultivated in a relationship is one that requires a great deal of trust. When a patient places their trust in you, it is something that cannot be taken lightly. In turn, I am very forthcoming to my patients in allowing them to express their concerns and misgivings so as to honor their trust.
