Specialties

Dr. Herbert T Ang 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 PCP

Dr. Ang always is extremely friendly and thorough in his exams and in m y apppointments. He always spends what seems about the right amount of time and I never feel rushed. He is quite communicative and doesn't talk down to me nor is he aloof like so many pcp's these days

Great doctor!

I've been having chronic pain and reoccurring fevers for upwards of 5 years. I have seen countless doctors and specialists and have never received a diagnosis or any validation that my pain and fevers are real. Dr. Ang was incredibly thorough during our appointment and listened carefully to my long list of symptoms and issues. He answered all of my questions and was extremely helpful. He was the first doctor to say that something was definitively wrong and that he was going to help me. After only 2 visits I have begun a treatment plan that is helping me deal with my pain and fevers. I am unspeakably relieved after visiting Dr. Ang's office. And to think it took 5+ years to figure out something that took this doctor 2 visits. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
