Specialties

Dr. Howard L Offenberg 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.

Won't take a patient that was referred

Are you kidding me? I guess this doctor is no good if he can't help my husband. Did not want to accept referral & has never even been seen by him. What kind of doctor are you? Obviously not to help people, or I should say only the easy ones.

Just Jackie

I'm impressed by' I usually can't get to the second page of a book in the waiting room before I'm called in. So many of my doctors keep patients waiting much too line. Friendly staff and this doctor has been good for me.

Loves to use the phrase "there is nothing I can do for you"

Despite being diagnosed with osteoarthritis, I was told "there is nothing I can do for you". Dismissed the possibility of seronegative rheumatoid arthritis just because my RA bloodwork did not show active RA and again told me "there is nothing I can do for you". Well I found a doctor who can do for me and is not only treating me but diagnosing me properly. Dr Offenburg didn't do appropriate bloodwork otherwise he would have known I did have seronegative rheumatoid arthritis which is now RADIO. Also he is rarely in the Ocala office and so the communication between him and his staff is all done via fax. So upon having an allergic reaction to the medication he gave me, my skin turned yellow, I broke out in rash, and started swelling. When I called his Ocala office he wasn't there, he was at his other office. Well, I had to wait for faxes to get an answer on what to do which his response to it was "yes possible allergic reaction". He never said what to do, never said to stop the meds, go to the er, etc. So I had to pay a ER bill of over $15,000 to find out what to do.
