Specialties

Dr. Donna M Acquafredda 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.

Office visit

Dr. Acqaufredda is very professional. She understands your problems and comes up with a solution. You have to wait a bit to be seen, but it is worth it. The staff is very helpful. It took me 10 yrs to find a Dr. who understands fibro. Thank you Dr. Acquafredda.

One Star

An elderly patient is told by the doctor that they need an injection (after receiving the bloodwork back) to help with excruciating pain. The patient is told that the doctor only gives these injections on Mondays and Wednesdays so needs to wait if somebody cancels to fit her in the doctor's schedule. This is unheard of, not to mention the rudeness of the receptionist saying that she has another line so she needs to hang up!!! If this is how a specialist's office runs, you're better off seeking medical help elsewhere.
