Specialties

Dr. Elizabeth A File 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.

Compasionate - Professional

Being a female in my late 40 with rheumatoid and several other auto immune diseases is not an easy thing. I had seen several other specialists in the past few years, but it wasn't unit I met Dr.File and her staff, that I finally had achieved a level of comfort. Everyone in her office is very compassionate and professional, and I never feel like I am being rushed. I have even had Dr.File call me with test results while she was on vacation....Thank You Dr.File & Staff, I finally have a reason to smile !

Professional and Caring

Dr. File really listens to what I have to say. Before she prescribes any medication, she thoroughly explains the side effects. She also gives me time to make up my mind.

A bright smile do not make up for dismissive attitude

My experience with this doctor over the last three years has not been good. She does not ask questions, she is rough during an exam of swollen and painful joints that elicits cries from the patient, shows little compassion, and says that it doesn't matter what kind of arthritis you have, the treatment is the same (it is NOT), that leads me to believe she doesn't have the qualifications to treat patients.
