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.

Where do I start??? I've been sick for many years, have several medical issues going on, so my doctor referred me to The Cleveland Clinic, which proved to be a total waste of my time. I waited months for the appointment and I went to a lot of trouble to send all of my medical records weeks in advance (per Dr. Gota's request). When she walked into the room, she asked why I was there (having no clue), and did not review any of the records I sent. She then left me sitting in a gown for 30 minutes while she "claimed" to be reviewing my records but was yelling at the nursing staff in the hallway instead. She was cold, impatient, rude, curt and abrasive. She refused to explain anything, only staring at her computer and not making eye contact at all. She told me my diagnosis was incorrect but couldn't explain why and became aggressive and nasty; she obviously didn't like me questioning her. SHe was unprofessional and dismissive and then ordered tests for a disease that I don't have and was completely off track. When she emailed me my abnormal test results after I returned home, I asked her several questions which she ignored and still hasn't answered months later, completely unethical. As another patient stated, she also wrote inaccurate things on the report sent to my doctor. I'm appalled that after all of these negative reviews listed, The Cleveland Clinic continues to employee this woman! I wrote several letters to the clinic, which got me nowhere. I suggest you write your complaints to the medical board instead. Being determined, I thankfully have a wonderful team of doctors that have given me the correct diagnosis and I am finally receiving the proper treatment. My doctors were not wrong, she was wrong and negligent in my eyes. My advice is to see another physician, do not give up, persevere and keep fighting hard.
Hands down the most humiliating experience of my life. I could not believe Dr Gota asked me "Why are you here? Who told you to come see me?" You can imagine the look in my face. She made no eye contact, just typed away on the computer. Horrible bedside manner. Hard to believe she is a Cleveland Clinic Doctor. I'd give her zero stars if I could...run...do not walk away from this doctor as fast as you can....as hard as it may be with your arthritis or other ailments. If you've seen her get a second opinion!
Dr. Gota insisted on taking about $1,000 worth of tests on me (after insurance), claiming that they were "standard". She did not tell me how many she'd take or how much they would cost. She was extremely rude when I called to ask her about what illnesses had been ruled out, treating me as if I were impertinent for asking and using only complex medical terminology. I spent about two minutes on the phone with her, and I can't emphasize enough how rude she was -- she treated me as if I were a spoiled idiot for asking about my test results. I really felt conned by the Cleveland Clinic; Gota clearly relished the experience of not telling me anything/making me feel like a moron, and I spent $1,000 for the privilege. I truly believe this doctor shouldn't be allowed to practice.
I was a patient with Dr. Gota for about a year. She helped me immeasurably and was very compassionate to my suffering. My only dislike is that she was too busy, at the end I called for an appointment because I was in pain and they wanted me to wait 6 months...much too long for a person who is in agony.
