Specialties

Dr. George W 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.

Excellent and caring physician

It took me 15 years of suffering misdiagnosis and expensive treatments by other doctors to be diagnosed with my rheumatoid arthritis. A friend recommended I see Dr. Kunkel, who was her father's doctor at the time. Thanks to Dr. Kunkel running the right tests he was able to get the proper diagnosis and treatment. When I went to him my joints were so stiff that I couldn't even comb my hair. Today I am very active and attending school thanks to him and his treatment.
