Dr. Amar Q Majjhoo 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.

First rheumatologist who said "you're not crazy" He never dismisses how severe my pain levels are and tries to help as much as possible. First rheumy to also take interest and actually X-ray to find I also have osteoarthritis. He has never judged me for being young with these issues which many other drs have. Terrific bed side manor as well as time spent listening to everything going on. Once you're a regular patient appts are easy to get and there is never a long wait in the office. His assistant is always on top of things as well as tried her best to assist with whatever issue is going on without just saying make an appt. I would HIGHLY recommend this dr! Especially if you have fibromyalgia because a few other "best rheumies" I've had were awful and super judgmental. I'm extremely glad I found him a few years ago! My treatment has been beyond amazing since switching to him!
Dr. Majjhoo was excellent. This particular type of specialty practice does take a little while to get in. It isn't the doctor's fault. It isn't the patients fault. Good doctors are worth waiting for. He reassured me that I wasn't crazy (lol) and gave me his honest thoughts and opinions regarding my situation. He ordered tests to rule out anything that may have been "hiding" because symptoms can all too often be the same for 10 different problems. What I liked the most was his bedside manner. He listened and actually seemed interested in what I was describing. He didn't just write me a prescription and send me on my way. He is approachable and has a good sense of humor. Dr. Majjhoo was also able to break things down and explain them in a context that was comfortable and understandable (I've had many doctors that could not).
I was having problems with widespread pain. My internist gave me the name of another doctor, who couldn't get me in for four months. The Majjhoo got me in in one months time. He told me he what he believed my diagnosis to be, but was thorough enough to run a few tests to be certain. I'm very pleased with him. He listens carefully, and is not at all dismissive.
