Dr. Elizabeth A Hawruk 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.

Waste of Time

I saw Dr Hawruk regarding an ongoing condition (almost 20 years), which it was obvious she knew little about. Instead of listening to my current treatment plan and symptoms she ordered a list of tests and then told me she didn't think there was anything wrong with me. Waste of time and money.

Five Stars

Dr. Hawruk is one of the kindest, caring doctors I have ever met. She takes the time to listen to her patients and really is concerned for their well being. I never feel like I am being rushed or hurried out of the office and she has really helped with the pain I have been experiencing. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a rheumatologist or internist.

Lupus Patient

I was a patient of Dr. Hawruk and when I first went to her office, I was toxic from so much prednisone injections given to me by another doctor. She immediately showed me such compassion and understanding and said she would help me immediately. Well, she did and I was her patient for many years. I just admire her so much because she is not only a great doctor, but a wonderful woman as well, with much to give her patients by way of sympathy, compassion and empathy. I have moved to another State but have yet to find a doctor of her caliber.. Its been 8 years, and I think of her often and how much she cared and how much I felt cared for. Just love her!!

The Best Rheumatologist

Dr. Hawruk was my rheumatologist for many years until I moved from NJ. I've been gone for 11 years now and have not found a doctor who has her compassion and understanding. She always spent the time needed with me and always understood what I needed. I highly recomend her to anyone needing a rheumatologist in the NJ area. You will not find a better rheumatologist anywhere. If my insurance would cover it I'd fly up to see her every three months so that I could follow up and again receive the care from this amazing doctor.
