Specialties

Dr. Erica Anderson 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.

Just Okay

Dr. Anderson provides care that is just okay. Not bad, but not very good either. Like most doctors she focuses on treating the symptoms instead of getting to the root cause of your pain. She is also rather prejudiced against natural remedies. When I asked her why I felt better taking certain supplements she told me it was a placebo effect. Which I think is a lot of bull. I know all about the placebo effect and I know when something works and when it doesn't work. I don't try to convince myself that a pill is making me feel better! If that's the case, I could just take a sugar pill and make myself believe it's taking away my pain, and save myself a lot of money. She only works two days a week so that makes scheduling appointments difficult. Every time I go to see her I wait a long time in the waiting room. She's a nice doctor, but I've about had it with the long wait room times and might look for another doctor.
