Specialties

Dr. Donald M Loveman 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.

Mother of patient

He's a total moron and cares about no patient who comes to him. He should do everyone a favor and leave the medical field.No compassion- terrible bed-side manner! I do believe he is abusive and needs to be reported to the medical board!

Cares more about staying on schedule than listening to patients. Takes months to get test results. I showed up to appointments and he wasn't there 3 times.

Dr Loveman took over my care when I moved here from out of state. He had very little medical history on me due to trouble getting my records transfered. I had been on a successful treatment program so my symptoms were under control. When he came in the room he did a very minimal exam told me I had no symptoms of my previous diagnosis and wanted to stop all medication. When I stated that my symptoms were under control due to the treatment plan I was on he became very defensive and rude. Any appointment after that my questions were not answered or he would even cut me off before finishing. Not saying he doesn't know what he's doing but he has the bedside manner of a toad.
