Specialties

Dr. Christine Hom 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.

Worse Doctor ever

Dr. Him has the worst bedside manners from a doctor I have ever experienced. My sons rare diagnosis of Takayasu Arteritis has left us seeing Sumerians doctors and she is horrible. My son didn't like her. She basically called him a liar. She doesn't listen to the problem. She does not look at history. I think she is unqualified to handle children. We saw her twice because we had to but chose to go out of state and discontinue care with her. Do not go to her she will not listen to you or believe your symptoms!

Patient

I was absolutely in shock by Dr. Hom's rude and know-it-all behavior. I felt highly violated by her; she gave me a complete (when I say complete, I mean complete!) physical exam in areas that were not even the slightest way, relative to my symptoms. She shut down all of my concerns, not to mention the fact that she told me my blood results were false positives. She basically called me a hypochondriac, telling me that my illness was all in my head. My ankle was so swollen it looked like a large red balloon! Don't know how I can make that up! I left her office feeling terrible and absolutely violated! Whatever you do, don't go to this doctor if you want an adequate and mindful physician
