Dr. Hoke H Shirley III 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.

I drive almost an hour to see this doctor. I've been threw 4 rhematoligist closer to my house and none of the could diagnosed what was wrong with me. I had two appointments with him and he knew exactly what was wrong and how to treat it. My issue is that I have allergies to a lot of medicines so we treat with what I can take. I personally think he is a great doctor.

Poly Myalgia Reumatica

Dr. Shirley helped me conquer a problem others had considered to be incurable. He is "present" to his patients . He learns about your issues by listening, asking questions and does not rely exclusively on the computer screen. Dr. Shirley is a physician I trust and one I would highly recommend.

Worth the wait

Dr Shirley is a saint! He could have an ego, but he doesn't. He always treats me with the utmost respect and concern for my well-being. I have been seeing him for 15+ years and he has always been most generous with his time. He calls you back the same day, too - if you call for something out of the ordinary. (Not his nurse - he calls). You may wait, but it is well worth it. Bring a book and enjoy the quiet.
