Dr. Fathima N Kabir has the following 2 specialties
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.

Lack of communication. Very difficult to get in contact with for questions, concerns, or refills on prescriptions. This is especially frustrating when taking a very important, time-sensitive medicine. Medicine refill was cancelled due to misunderstandings about insurance and process of switching doctors, but was never notified about this cancellation. Do not return messages, have to keep calling until someone answers. Very dissatisfied with the care the staff showed for problems.
I liked Dr. Kabir upon my first visit and follow up visit to get test results. However, I had extreme difficulty getting ANY responses to my phone calls. This involved side effects, new medicine not working properly, and needing different medicine. Finally, after being promised that I would be called back 3 different times that week, I called the after hours number. The doctor on call did not work at the same office but, he took time to listen and, even though he didn't know the situation, he followed up with one of my other doctors to let him know that the new medicine would not conflict with my other meds. He called in the prescription but, Dr. Kabir was suppose to call me on Monday to tell me how to wean off another medicine. It is a week later and she never called. I have NEVER left a doctor because I was unhappy. I hope this review helps others because I feel that her lack of response is dangerous.
Insulting, judgmental, looked down upon general practitioners, was condescending, over all rude, uncaring and cold. One of the worst doctor experiences I have had in the last twenty years. Also do not schedule near anything else you need to do because no matter what her site says.... you will be waiting awhile.
Dont waste you time Dr. and staff are Horrible, Non-responsive and extremely UnCaring. I had fallen in my garage then went to wake imaging for XRays. I called the office 4 times telling nurse that I had fallen in my garage and hip was locking up could the Dr. please take the time and look at my recent X-rays. Well 3 weeks passed and not one response. I found another caring Dr. in the interim and waited to see if Kabir would return my calls. WELL guess what - she NEVER DID - Gee thanks allot Dr. (and I use that term lightly) for your concern and care of an existing patient. My experience says Do not use this Dr.
I have been going to Dr. Kabir for about 1 1/2 years. I moved to NC from NY 2 years ago and had to find a new Rheumatologist. As a matter of fact she knew of my former Rheumatologist in NY. That made me feel very comfortable. Dr. Kabir takes the time to listen to me about how I have been feeling over the last 6 months. We discuss all of the medications that I am presently taking and if they are helping me. I would definately recomend her to my family and friends. Her staff has always been very friendly and courteous with me.
