Specialties

Dr. Gary A Kunkel 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.

Five Stars

One of the best doctors I've ever had. I see him twice a year for my condition and he ALWAYS knows who I am and why I'm there. He takes the time to read my chart before he comes in so he knows exactly what we're discussing. He takes as much time as is needed to talk through all questions and concerns. He asks lots of questions before the exam - both relative to the specific condition, as well as any other conditions or health concerns. He treats the whole person, not just symptoms. He makes sure that his treatment is not only appropriate for the condition, but also that it does not conflict with other treatments I may be receiving. He consults with my other doctors. He stays current on new treatments and medications for my disease, and always keeps me informed. He really listens. I would recommend him to anyone.
