Specialties

Dr. Gary M Kammer 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.

Ease of Appointment

Very difficult to make an appointment; especially for former patient. Have been to see the Dr. about 5 years ago. So when I went to make an appointment I was informed that they no longer had my chart and that I would need a referral slip from my primary doctor. That has not set right with me since he has already seen me. I am senior citizen and know when I am dealing with a lot of pain and don't need permission to see a specialist. No wonder health insurance is so high - they make you go to more doctors then you need to. BTW!!! what happened to computers retaining patients records.

Patient in pain

Very bad bedside manners. Dr even yelled at my friend that was trying to help me convey my thoughts and concerns. My friend answer the Dr by saying that I was depressed because I am in so much pain, and not depressed able everyday life. And Dr Kammer yelled at her, saying that I am his patient and that I didn't need an advocate. I've had enough of this doctor after only two visits. Him and his staff are very rude. I will not be going back. I'm having my records released to a Cleveland Clinic doctor.

Dr. Kammer's Patient

I have had Dr. Kammer for many years now and I must admit. No one has tried harder to keep me pain free and mobile. When i first went to Dr. Kammer, i was in alot of pain with RA. No one has worked as hard as he has to address every aspect of my problems. Now let me tell you, i am no easy task. He spends his time , answers your questions. and he will get to the root of your problem and help you get on the right track. Along the way, you too have to be patient and let him do his job. This is not a easy disorder and can be very complex. Just don't give up. My biggest fear is he will retire..Oh i hope that doesn't ever happen. Good luck.
