Specialties

Dr. Asha S Muthalaly 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.

Still in utter shock!

This was BY FAR my worst doctor's experience EVER! After waiting almost 6 months to see this doctor, the office had my appointment time incorrect! When I arrived, they said the doctor was on her lunch break, even though the paperwork from her office CONFIRMED my appointment time. After agreeing to see me, the doctor RUSHED through 7 years of tests, lab results, scans, and notes from specialty centers like Johns Hopkins (MD), Albert Einstein (NY), Mt. Sinai (NY), George Washington University (DC), Fibromyalgia Center (Mass), and more! She kept INSISTING that my diagnosis was Fibromyalgia and she knew because of where she studied! I KEPT insisting it was NOT fibromyalgia because my inflammation markers were thru the ROOF and much more! Upon leaving, I asked when should I schedule a follow-up appointment, she responded QUITE curtly by saying, "Come in as YOU deem necessary." Lastly, she order 27 different blood tests, I never received a call, email, or anything concerning the aforementioned! I had to go to her office to get the results but the doctor wouldn't provide me with an analysis of my results! HORRIBLE! HORRIBLE! HORRIBLE! HORRIBLE!!!!!

I went to her with knee problems that I have endured for years. She did a complete workup with me to determine what the next step should be. She referred me to a surgeon for consult and now, after 1 total knee replacement (2nd one soon), I feel she has made a difference in my life. Instead of just trying new meds and sending me on my way, she knew I needed more and initiated the steps to correct some of my pain issues. She is great and I highly recommend her!
