Dr. Eric Sheldon 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.

One Star

Dr. Sheldon did not believe that I was sick despite my complaining of symptoms and despite lab results from bloodwork that clearly indicated there is something wrong. He basically told me that I should ignore the lab results because I don't look sick to him. Since one of my symptoms is insomnia he assumed that all my symptoms were due to lack of sleep and told me that all I needed was some sleep and I would be just fine. I wish all I needed was sleep but I knew there was something much more serious going on because my body felt so wretched that I constantly felt like I was going to collapse & could barely make it through each day. I went to another rheumatologist who immediately recognized my symptoms. He knew the right questions to ask and he even observed physical manifestations of my illness that I was not even aware of (such as nerve damage in my extremeties and a flat butterfly rash on my face). He sent me for various tests and it was confirmed that I have an autoimmune disorder and several other conditions caused by the primary autoimmune disorder, including significant nerve damage throughout my body. The disorder has also affected by blood vessels and my kidneys. Dr. Sheldon is a pleasant and personable person but I do not understand why he did not take my symptoms seriously, why he deemed the lab results insignificant and why he was not thorough in his questions and observations, all of which led to him mis-diagnosing my illness. Based on my experience I would not recommend him.
