Dr. Alla J Model has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    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.

Poor service

Been seeing dr model for a few years for RA. Some days she seems concerned, other days she seems bothered. Her staff could use some additional training on customer service. Her one assistant Sarah is very rude. Blatantly nasty. I would rather get my tooth pulled than have to deal with her. So dissatisfied.

Dr. Model is very competent and thorough with her exams. I followed with many doctors to no avail, they could not find out what was wrong with me. One visit with Dr. Model and she told me what she thought was wrong and then proved her diagnosis with blood work. My lupus is now better through medication and she takes care of my symptoms with follow-up appointments. Dr. Model's services are highly recommended.
