Specialties

Dr. Elizabeth M Simpson 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.

Had been seeing Dr. Paty for years and when he retired, Dr. Simpson took over his patients. Have been very pleased with the care I have received.

Would not ever go to this doctor again. I had x-rays done I ask her about her opinion she didn't even look at them. All she had to say was there in my inbox. She never wanted to try me on arthritis meds. I bearly could walk at the time. I now have a doctor that is helping me and I can walk some now and I have a chance at a normal life. Would not recommend this doctor to anyone.

Not a rheumatologist for younger people.

I didn't like the tone of this dr and how I was spoken to. She did not listen or do a thorough exam, and gave a completely different dx than my pcp advised. It didn't make any sense according to my bloodwork and symptoms. She is apparently not experienced with diagnosing autoimmune diseases. Another rheumatologist was able to give me an accurate diagnosis and proper treatment.
