- 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.
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.

I have been a patient of Dr. Marx for approximately 6 years since my Sjogren's Syndrome diagnosis. She was referred to me by one of her college friends who was treating me and moving out of state. Dr. Marx is very thorough and patient. I am confident with her choice of care for me. I am in the healthcare field, so that doesn't come easy. Although she is the doctor, she does respect my decision of which medicine I choose to take or not. She was patient and respected my decision when I chose to not to change the medication I was currently taking. After doing research, I decided to go with her decision, and so happy that I did. ;)
After receiving a very disheartening diagnosis of fibromyalgia, the rheumatologist I saw told me the "only answer was Cymbalta" and that I should come back to him if I wanted a prescription. I decided instead to look for other doctors. Dr. Marx saw me soon after, and has really improved my life. She was immensely detailed in her interview and asked me things about my family history that I'd never thought were pertinent to my health, and she was very, very patient. She also didn't want to hand me a prescription and run, which I respect. She instead wanted me to try lifestyle modification and alternative treatments, like physical therapy and diet management. Instead of diagnosing and dismissing me, she actually examined me as a person AND a patient. Her recommendations and referrals have helped me immensely, and I couldn't recommend her more. She's a very holistic, realistic doctor.
