Dr. Catherine L Sullivan 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.

Very lucky to have found Dr. Sullivan

Dr. Sullivan really cares about her patients. I first went to see her in May and was diagnosed with Raynaud's disease. I am more than ecstatic that she was able to prescribe a medication that has helped me! She takes the time to explain things and listens to you. I feel normal again and this disease no longer affects my life on a daily basis like it used to. I am so happy to have found Dr. Sullivan and highly recommend her.

attentive to my symptoms

I needed to do some more testing and had a follow up appointment in three weeks. Dr Sullivan and her staff were thorough, but quick and efficient. I felt confident in what we discussed. I've seen two rheumatologists but she is the only one who actually was attentive to my symptoms and test results.

Dr. Sullivan is a brilliant, yet, humble doctor who goes above and beyond for her patients to make sure they are accurately diagnosed and treated specific to their needs. She SAVED MY LIFE, by listening to my symptoms and my requests for certain tests. She not only found out exactly what was wrong with me, it was outside of her scope of medicine, but she researched and started treatment right away and consulted with various doctors who managed my care. I still see her and consider her my primary and my friend. Thank you & God bless you and your staff.
