Specialties

Dr. David S Sager 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.

The Only Doctor that Relieved my Pain

None of the other doctors was able to correctly diagnose me or give me any relief from pain.The first time i saw Dr. Sager he suspected that I had ankylosing spondylitis, and after some x-rays and lab work he confirmed it and put me on Remicade. Several weeks later I was almost pain free for the first time in many years.

this was my doctor for around 14 years treating me for Gout. He put me on a drug that he knew I was allergic to but he thought that I may have become immune to. Long story short, the drug caused a permanent lung disease that has ruined my life. This was Sept. of 07, and he has not contacted me since. Not even a phone call to see how I'm doing. If you want someone who does not care about you see this man.
