Dr. Carey J Field 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.

It's been two years since I came down with sort of rheumatic disease, and I've seen a handful of rheumatologists about it, all of them basically unhelpful. Dr Field was no exception. The visit was about twenty minutes, which is typical, and for most of it I found myself being talked over. I'm a grown man and don't normally allow this from anyone, but as a patient, you're so eager and grateful for professional attention that you submit to it, because if you object or anything, they'll put it in your medical record and bias all subsequent doctors against you. I'll give Dr Field points for admitting that doctors do this to patients when I raised the matter. But when it came time for the useless "range of movement" protocol, which utterly fails to account for all sorts of movements people make in the course of their day, and I pointed this out, she agreed while shuffling me onto the table to go through the same rigmarole. If you don't say "ow" at any point in this exercise, they won't believe anything to be wrong with you, if they do in the first place. In the end, what I got was a recommendation of physical therapy. This wasn't surprising, being a state Medicaid patient: PT is covered. The problem is that I've been worsening steadily for the past two years, and after a couple of months of PT, am now having trouble walking; a true professional could have seen this coming. I might have been spared a lot of time and grief and money if any of the rheumatologists I have seen just rolled the dice and prescribed a medication. But such is their fear of lawsuits, I suppose, and their prime directive of keeping costs down, that it's deemed better to let a man in his thirties suffer and be labeled a "malingerer", or however they euphemize their own complete lack of compassion. Also, zero follow-up. I mean not even the insulting automated message they send through their e-mail system. My advice: if they try to stick you with Field, hold out for Dr Orzechowski. Longer wait but better reputation.
