Dr. Anna K Imperato 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.

Called Dr regarding a mutual patient and she was condescending and rude and suggested I look up some drugs as she didn't have time to educate me on these. I too am a doctor and was appalled by her lack of professionalism towards a colleague. I cant imagine how she treats her patients. This is a RED FLAG!
Went to see her because I had chronic hip and knee pain. In our consult she prescribed me cymbalta ,after about a week taking the medication I informed her the side effects I was experiencing, she told me that I needed a pysciatrist, after I stopped the medication my symptoms cleared and later found out I needed hip replacement. If you want to get aggravated then this dr. Is for you.
Dr Imperato seems to think that her time is worth wayyyy more than her patients. Her wait time is at least 2-3 hours. She doesn't listen, she seems distracted and she doesn't answer phone calls! I wanted to ask about a medication she put me on and her staff told me I'd need another appointment. Don't bother!!!
If you are now, or have EVER in your lifetime suffered from an eating disorder and wish to be bullied and/or harassed for it, this is the doctor for you! I simply refused to be weighed, as I know that is my right as a patient, and I was not seeing her for anything even remotely weight related. She freaked out! She had no idea how to take "no" for an answer. I began seeing her 5 years ago for complications relating to a very rare form of sarcoidosis that effects the CNS. (Joint pain, inflammation, osteoporosis from long term steroid use, etc) She was always extremely controlling but seemed to care, as she was building her solo practice. Now that she's doing better (?) she is now just absurdly controlling, rude and unprofessional! She barely even looks at you. She stares at her laptop and types, while you answer her questions. A robot could probably take her place, and be more compassionate. If you do see her, also expect it to be an ALL DAY EVENT. Average wait time is at least 1 1/2 hours. I have waited 3 hours. All in all, she never prescribed me anything that ever helped me and I now have a new Rheumatologist!
