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.

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.

After 18 months of limited walking due to pain, I went to Dr. Saba. She sent me for the correct test and to the specialist who resolved my pain.
Saw Dr. Saba 3x last in 2016. Staff is very unfriendly and uncaring, incompetent. X-ray done there was useless to ortho doctor. No report of my visits were given to my primary care. Blood work done in their office each visit; when they called with blood results, I was told I had inflammation and Dr. would talk to me at next appt.; next appt I just had more blood work. STILL WAITING on MRI results I had done 10 months ago!!! (Primary care gave me results.) They called a few days after MRI was done, left message for me to call back for results....when I called back, they said they had no MRI results for me. Dr. Saba was ok, but it was the staff that made me never wanting to go back!
Not good experience at all! They NEVER follow through on their end of requirements needed for patients! Constantly having to call them back for them to follow up on THEIR job. There's always one excuse after another why it wasn't done. This is their Reston office. Their Fairfax office is worse. Staff are rude, especially receptionist, last I was there an elderly woman. As far as Dr. Saba I never had complaints for her. She was wonderful and caring. Their staff, however ... little to be desired.
