Specialties

Dr. Eugene Y Kissin 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.

Three Stars

He's okay but sometimes you feel like you are a science experiment - he is excited to see you when he is trying to figure you out, but once he thinks he is done diagnosing he seems bored and loses interest. He is also dismissive of many symptoms and questions.

A wonderful doctor.

I saw Dr. Kissen in the Rhuematology clinic at Boston Medical Center. He used an ultrasound machine to inject my jaw and diagnose the cause of my hip pain. During both instances, he was very professional and knowledgable. He was able to quickly identify the areas that needed attention and his bedside manner was very comforting during painful experiences. He is very good at what he does and anyone who is fortunate enough to be under his care should be thankful to have such a highly skilled doctor at their side.

Dr. Kissin truly provides exceptional care. He treats the whole person, not just the disease. He is highly knowledgeable in his field. He clearly explains what the issues are, what the possible treatments are and the pros and cons of each treatment and listens to patient concerns. He goes out of his way to be helpful to his patients. He is very professional and very responsive. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
