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.

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.

My main complaint would be the wait time. Both times I have seen him my wait time is over and hr. I am sitting here now in room. My appt was 2:15. Its currently now 3:40 and still have not seen doctor. Both times here only seen 2girls working and its easy to see they are over worked and to a point unprofessional. Inappriate conversation going on around me. Doc speaks so low I can't quite hear him. Soft and low speaking was one of the first things he said to me.
I've been a patient for almost 10 years every month. The wait time is absolutely ridiculous! They always overbook! Dr. Nami doesn't listen to my concerns. He talks over you and only wants to give you what he wants. I have voiced my concerns about the infusions because of the side effects but he doesn't really care. He doesn't like to prescribe pain meds and will force you to go on those infusions/injections. I'm in the process of finding another doctor....
Been a patient of Dr. Nami's partner, Dr. Brendese for two years. Successfully treated my RA and Lupus with Remicade infusions. But my life had been turned into a nightmare because of Dr. Nami's greed and callousness. Their office manager billed the wrong insurance company for two of my treatments. Dr. Nami proceeded to refuse my care because of my "overdue" balance. This led to over three months of insurance company reviews while my health has been deteriorating. Dr. Nami got reimbursed but now my future coverage has been rejected!!!! I am no longer covered for the one medicine that was working for me because of this greedy obnoxious doctor!! Now I am starting with a new doctor and praying to God that we can find a treatment that works again. Stay away from Dr.Nami.
