Dr. April Chang-Miller has the following 2 specialties
- 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.

My comments are similar to what I read from others. Judgemental and haute attitude is how I would categorize Dr. Chang-Miller. I moved from another state with a diagnosis from a highly reputable Rheumatologist and she disagreed and therefore the medication I was taking that helped me was denied by insurance. She would not bend in the slightest.
Never been so humiliated in my life! I'm a busy career professional and have been healthy for most of my life until recently when I started to notice some unusual symptoms. She treated me like I was a hypochondriac. Every symptom, she explained away even though I had confirmed diagnosis from other Dr. and supported by lab work. It took 3 months to get an appt. and what a waste of time! I really expected a Dr. from the Mayo to be of high caliber- not necessarily! Luckily I have found a great rheumatologist that is not part of the Mayo that does treat me with respect, listens to me and was able to diagnose me. Unbelievable!
This MD discounted every symptom I had. I would not revisit her as my MD. Found another MD who identified by disease. This MD made me wait 1 year before I had appropriate treatment for my symptoms. I believe her ego got in the way. Other MD's at Mayo recognized it but because it was not "her idea" she marginalized my symptoms in to every day aches and pains. Hardly !! I am just tough. Wasted my visit on how much water I drank and yogurt I ate. There is also no follow up or treatment planning. They want you to return to primary care. After wasting valueable treatment time I finally have a Rheumatologist who is listening to my symptoms not deciding what they are.
