Specialties

Dr. Douglas J Hempel has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Dr Hempel is the best! He took the time to listen to me and came up with a treatment plan I was 100% on board with. I highly recommend! I saw him for bilateral knee swelling.

Humiliated former patient

If you are a potential patient that would like the ability to ask questions or voice any concerns about your treatment DO NOT see this doctor. In addition to my questions/concerns being dismissed I was informed he couldn't help me...for my disease he specializes in! To top it off, he also prevented me from seeing another physician at the same clinic. I am humiliated, confused and still suffering with now no idea where to turn. I cannot fathom how this "doctor" can rationalize this behavior. How is a patient supposed to put their trust in doctors when this is happening?
