Specialties

Dr. Christina Hift 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.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Wonderful doctor, i highly recommend her. She spends a lot of time talking to me and my daughter trying to get all the information that could be helpful in making diagnosis, and design treatment. For the first time we were treated so humanly. She helped my daughter, her health improved after prescribed therapy.

Dr. Hift is the most thorough, trustworthy and compassionate doctor I have ever worked with. After consulting numerous specialist, including 2 other Rheumatologists, she was able to provide a diagnosis and develop a treatment plan that worked! The difference is from being homebound to being active. In addition, she always responds immediately and never makes me feel like I shouldn't ask. She has truly changed my life profoundly.
