Dr. Fehmida Zahabi 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.

I miss Dr. Zahabi I am unable to go because her office does not accept my current insurance. However I have been singing her praises and I have a friend who is in real need and would benefit from seeing Dr. Zahabi. The front office has caused Dr. Zahabi to lose two patients and I am sure others will follow first of all in a two period weeks time, calling multiple times in the day pressing the right button for new a patient appointment (option #2) no one answered. Finally I call and get a live person who was rude, unprofessional, & condescending, and then when my friend called to make the appointment she encountered 2 staff-ers who proceeded to treat her as if she was ignorant and they deemed her unworthy to come to that office....they spoke to her as if she was unfit to be a patient. I am writing this review in hopes that the Dr. reads it and understands that the front office can make you or break you. Not only have you lost a new patient but I will not remain in your care, so I have fired you as my doctor.
I started going to Dr. Zahabi sad to say three years now and she only saw me one 2 times out of the three years of being her patient. I only would see her APN Andrea Landon which she is good but like my other doctor said that she should not be seeing you every visit because she has not went to school the number of year to know everything to become a doctor and that I needed to fine a new doctor. The office is not organize and they never send your records to your other doctors like they should. My doctor would always complain that they never get updates on me from this doctors office and when you ask them to send the information they never do. I my Dermatologist was not a Rheumatologist before becoming a Dermatologist I would have change doctor long time ago. My Dermatologist is doing for me what Dr. Zahabi should be doing and all my doctors would ask me who is your Rheumatologist because she should be addressing the issues that I'm having with Lupus.
