- 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.
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.

Dr. Miknowski is an old fashion doctor who relies more on his capacity than in lab tests. He really saved my life once asking me if I had a transfusion in the past after a tons of lab tests concluded that I had nothing. The only problem is that sometime to have an appointment takes a week but it is worthwhile waiting.
I have been going to Dr. Miknowski for 8 years now and he is a truly wonderful doctor. I never have to wait in the waiting room for more than 5 minutes, and after being called into the exam room usually wait about 15 minutes. He has an extremely caring bedside manner, not at all arrogant or dismissive. I always feel that I am getting his full attention, that he addresses my health issues from all the angles, and that he spends as much time with me as necessary. Dr. Miknowski is a very intelligent man who is always up to date on the latest research. If you're searching for a rheumatologist, you won't be disappointed with him!
My dad is a doctor, so I have strong views about how the doctor/patient interaction should work. I would also say that I am a pretty good communicator. I have had other doctors treat me like a widget on an assembly line, but not doctor Miknowski. He listens carefully and treats my concerns with respect. He also is good at advising me about things to watch out for (he is sensitive to my belief that overall I am a very healthy person with a few pronounced risks). For example, when I came in with a repeat case of strep throat, he spent time talking through with me sources of infection, additional preventive measures, the risk of antibiotic resistant strains, and what to do if others in the family had certain symptoms (in our case, go to the hospital). I felt really well cared for. That being said, he is not big on ordering lots of tests, which is fine with me. The downside of his practice is the staff is less than ideal, but I can usually get what I need by being super friendly, and I think things may have improved lately. It's also
