Specialties

Dr. Barbara Roach 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.

  • 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.

Doesn't Get Any Better Than This - One Incredible Person!

Your reviewRated 5.0 out of 5.0Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Doesn't Get Any Better Than This - One Incredible Person - - TodayDr. Roach is an exceptional, well educated, moral and ethical professional and human being. Anyone who has been fortunate enough to have found and been treated by Dr. Roach has been blessed. I only wish there were more MD's and people like her. In reading a negative commentary someone wrote regarding waiting time for your appointment......the measure of the quality of the care you have available to you from this person/professional is far more important than wait times. Many patients in Rheumatology and other specialties have complex care, urgent needs, and unanticipated issues that arise during the course of their visits. Not cut and dried. They are given the care they need, and it may take extra, unanticipated time. The ethical MD knows this and is thorough. It isn't about time. It is about people and human lives, compassion and care. I am sure you would wait at what you know to be a good restaurant because of the good food.....Put your medical care in that same perspective and be thankful for this great professional. Bless her.Edit - Delete
