Specialties

Dr. Carly L Skamra 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.

If it hadn't been for Dr.C Skamra and her knowledge and follow up testing I am unsure where we would be. Her bedside manor and quick response helped keep our minds at ease when faced with a new and scary diagnosis. She had a game plan and a positive attitude.

Dr. Karma did one test on me and then blew me off. The most horrible Dr ever

Full Review Rating Breakdown
My first visit with a rheumatologist

Dr. Skamra was very knowledgeable about her field and took 45 minutes to explain to me the various types of arthritis that may be affecting me. She was kind, understanding, a great listener and I was very impressed with the time she spent with me. She does a thorough exam and runs specific tests to get the answers she needed to diagnose me. When it came time to give me the results, she was prompt and explained them in detail. Also, when we talked about medications for this disease, she was not pushy and respected how I would like to treat this. I highly recommend her as a wonderful physician and a truly caring person!
