  • Sports Medicine

    A sports medicine specialist is a physician who is trained to diagnose and treat injuries and conditions caused by participation in athletic activities.
    These doctors are generally employed by professional sports teams to care for the athletes who are injured. They have extensive knowledge of the types of injuries that athletes are most susceptible to, such as stress fractures, sprains, concussions, muscle cramps, ACL injuries, and shin splints.

    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.

Worst Experience with a medical professional

This was the most egotistical practitioner I have ever been around. Working as a nurse that is saying a lot. He did not want to hear anything I had to say; and stated information was irrelevant to what I was coming in for without letting me finish the sentence to connect the information. Not knowledgeable on the given diagnosis; spent most of the time bragging up his skills and credentials which I already knew by researching prior to the appointment. I would not recommend anyone waste their time unless you are just looking to get some pain medication.

Bedside manner needs help

His bedside manner leaves something to be desired. He actually sat there biting his fingernails and looking completely like I was boring him to death while I told him why I was there. Really bad manners in my opinion.I don't think he took me serious. I won't be going back.

Dr S seemed to know his business and diagnosed my problem right away. I was 5 minutes late to an appointment after fighting road construction from across town and he refused to see me. I found another Rheumatologist. Also, he referred me to a physical therapist that was a total waste of time.
