Specialties

Dr. Heather M Lake 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.

No BS

She was very matter of fact and straight to the point. I didn't need coddled, I just wanted a plan of action and that is exactly what I got. She listened to what I am sure was very confusing explanations regarding my symptoms.

Staff is not courteous

The receptionist at Dr Heather Lake's office is was not courteous. It took 30 minutes for the receptionist to schedule an appointment for my next visit. The receptionist did not know how to input another patients information in the computer. She could have stop to check me out but she continued to search on the computer. I was also disapointed with my overall service because Dr. Lake knew how long, I was sitting there waiting. I will be looking for another rheumatologist with a more courteous staff.

Found out recently she misdiagnosed a condition when I consulted with 3 other doctors. Plan to file a complaint with the AMA.
