Dr. Goddard S Lainjo 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.

Most knowledgeable and compassionate doctor I have ever been to.

I am terrified of the day that he retires.

A Compassionate Doctor

Dr Lainjo was quick to recognize when my PsA had been joined by RA and Sjogrens. He is distressed by my pain and does his best to alleviate it. There is often a fairly long wait in the office-partly because he spends time with his patients. I do think it would be better were he to examine various areas in my body that are affected by my diseases yet he only looks at my hands (although in my first visit with him, he was more thorough.) He can tell by looking at my hands, whether or not my meds are functioning properly and also how much pain I am in. All in all he is compassionate and professional.

Amazing Doctor

I spent years not know what was wrong with me. Countless doctors, countless symptoms. I finally found someone who not only diagnosed me but is helping me understand and manage Lupus. Always courteous always available. Only doctor that calls to see how you are doing... yes he isnt just a doctor that helps cure people he has a heart of gold.

experience with dr lainjo

I believe he is a very good doctor, but never discusses anything with me. His response to questions about shots or prescriptions is that it will help. He never gives a name to anything
