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.

Dr. Saldana diagnosed me accurately with fibromyalgia in a time when the condition was little known. He listened and believed me when I complained of things. It did not seem it at the time because he kept sending me to specialists who seemed to dismiss my concerns. Dr Saldana never told me what he was thinking at the time and it seemed my concerns were not being taken seriously. All together Dr Saldana took the reports from the specialist and diagnosed the condition. This was years ago when the condition was not really heard of or taken seriously in the overall medical community. He also admitted that he did not know much about the condition (in 1998) and guided me to where I could find information.
I have not been seen for over a year I have other symptoms and was told by my primary to go back to see this doctor and was given a referral. I have called the office three times and told each time we have to check with the doctor because it's been over a year. I never got a call back. I called today and was told he would not take me back as a patient. They offered no reason. It's not a medication issue because he never prescribed any. They have delayed my medical care. How dare they. No reason given
iwent there for the fight of my life thinking he was trying to find out what disease i have but instead for a year and a half he was just testing for only one disease. when i realized he was not trying to test for other diseases wasting my life time,knowing that my sickness was getting worse. I addressed him about it and he told me not to come back their and was inconsiderate about my sickness.
i used to see the doctor in the alden office. the space is very small and it's in a dirty old basement so it is not handicapped accessible. the wait time was always excessively long so he rushes through each visit. he has a heavy accent and is very difficult to understand. i often got the feeling that he was just nodding along but didn't know what i was saying. very few options of treatment were offered to me- only 2 options for medications and some injections that he wouldn't tell me the name of only that they were for muscle pain and should last 3-4 months. they didn't. this office does not take any type of card for payment only cash or check. i paid my bill in full by check then 8 months later they said they lost my check and had to rebill me. i didn't have enough to pay the whole bill so i sent a payment. a week before my next appointment i was told they needed the full balance or the doctor would not see me until it was paid in full. it seems pretty unethical/unprofessional to punish me for their mistake. i had to scramble to find a new doctor before i ran out of my medication. i would never recommend any doctor who would treat sick patients this way.i chose this doctor because he is a lot closer for me but i'd much rather drive further for better care and will never go back to him.
