Specialties

Dr. Edward A Ewald 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.

No bedside manner

I walked out crying. Horrible bedside manner. Questioned everything I said. Ex. I told him my hands were swollen. He looks at them and says they do t look swollen to me. Really!?? It's you're 1st time seeing me. How would you know what they look like. Made me feel like I was annoying him. Felt like a complete idiot. I wouldn't go back even if he promised he would make all my pain go away. Receptionist wasn't that nice either. I asked her for my stuff please as I was crying l. She was like what stuff. Never in my life!

One Star

Find another Doctor, this one doesn't care. I don't know what his problem is but I felt more like an inconvenience or an annoyance, not a patient.

terrible experience

I went in today due to results from my PCP regarding arthritis coupled with lab results. He asked my symptoms, than stated my ANA came back positiVE which generally means lupus, but my symptoms "don't match". He never even asked any... All I knew was my body hurts. I told him that and he said "but where". So I proceeded to tell him, "my hands, hips, shoulders, back, knees" so he touched them and asked if anything swells or gets stiff I said yes. So he sent me off for lab work. When I asked a question he said "I don't think anything is wrong, so the discussion is unnecessary". I left with more questions than I had when I got there... Horrible.
