Dr. Eric J Hochman has the following 3 specialties
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.
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.

Very dismissive and speaks to patients like they're idiots. Autoimmune disorders are complicated he is hesitant to order the right test, or any test if you're concerned. He tries to talk you out of being tested for things because he doesn't think it's likely you have whatever it is you suspect. Work with people, hear them out and put symptomatic clues together.
We moved to the area a year ago and I've just switched to this Dr. after a bad experience with another. WOW! This guy treats you like a Dr. should! He was EARLY to our appt by 15min. He mentioned they aren't often running early, but also said I will never wait in the office for more than 5min on him. Though I've been diagnosed for 4 years now he wanted to perform his own exam on me and form his own opinion without outside influence. After that, we went through my complete medical history, page by page. He took the time, he listened to my concerns, he was very focused and took amazing notes on me. This guy is a keeper! I didn't see this website until AFTER my bad experience with the former Dr. and all the reviews for him on here are also negative. Not knowing anyone or the area, I listened to these reviews and chose Dr. Hochman based on the positive reviews I saw and every one of them was correct. He is a good Dr.! My advice is to listen to the reviews you see ... if the majority are negative, why waste your time, money, and stress?
