Dr. Achal M Vaidya has the following 2 specialties
A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr Vaidya has been my rheumy since 2003. He is very caring and concerned about my issues. I have many since I've had rheumatoid since I was 32...am now 67 With the baby boomer generation coming of age, there are so many patients and more rheumatologists are needed. I find him to be very knowledgeable, caring and he listens to my concerns. I'm very happy with Dr Vaidya after being his patient for 13 yrs.
With my PCP's referral, I called Arthritis Clinic of Stark County in early Dec, 2012. My appointment came finally in Jan 15th, 2013. After brief exam, the doctor told me to try Aleve first, but he also said he could write me a low dose Elavil or Plaqenil for my arthritic pain and 4-6 week follow up visit. 2 weeks past with absolute no relief, I called and asked for prescription. So far I made 3 phone calls with no updates, no absolute nothing! Left me hang dry! I didn't know what I was supposed to do. So wrong! I finally asked my physician whom I work with and got a medrol pak just to get immediate relief.
wish I could tell you all that is wrong with this doctor. he feels he has the right to judge people on the first hello. he has no idea how i feel nor do i feel he cares. i sepnt my money to see him and he treated me as if i were not important. i am a 30 yr old who went from an active life of sports and p90x everyday to not being able to play with my children or even take a simple walk at times. some days when i get up for work i just cry because i hurt so bad all over. when i tried to explain this he acted as if he knew the problem and it was fibromyalgia.(bull) so 1st time meeting me and you just know what no one else has in a year. sorry sunshine not that good at your job. he was cocky and rude and his staff stood behined counter belching and talking about other patients...cute. now i feel he should perhaps head back to his country when people treat people this way (im guessing)
I find him to be a very warm and caring physician. He sat and talked with me and reviewed the tests he was ordering. I received a call from his nurse within 48 hours after the tests were completed to explain the results. At my second appointment he had his staff provide me with written information about the results/findings of the tests. He has always offered his hand when he enters the room and once because I think it was quite obvious that I was a bit worked up he even gave me a quick reassuring hug at the completion of my visit. I have no complaints about his care at all.
