Dr. Harpinder S Ajmani 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.

As a patient diagnosed with Gout, who has sought the professional care of a rheumatologist, I expected that a physician of this discipline and expressed years of experience would have a better handle on the pain management aspect of treatment and patient care. Instead, I was treated I suspect as someone who could not be trusted and perhaps as one looking for narcotics. In my opinion, this doctor and many others are have misplaced their ethical position leaning not to the default of not prescribing pain meds often, but not, categorically prescribing pain, even anticipatory pain treatment whatsoever! While we all understand the risks associated with over-prescribing, something very much has been lost if the nature and purpose of these medications, expressly for unexpected and unplanned situations. It's no more than 'pass the buck,' let the hospitals be the ones to prescribe. This is patently wrong on at least two counts: a) the doctor is failing in the complete care of the patient and b) this adds to the healthcare cost containment issues where patients are accused of overusing the hospital system. I could go on.
