Specialties

Dr. James S Evans 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.

Five Stars

This is without a doubt, one of the BEST physicians I have ever dealt with. ALL doctors these days are late for their appointments, that is a product of our medical system as a whole and I don't count that in my rating.This physician is caring, has an outstanding bedside manner and even when I KNOW he has other people waiting, he goes out of his way to discuss my condition with me, answer all my questions and even exchange friendly banter. My highest praise for the fact that HE LISTENS TO ME. He TRUSTS ME TO KNOW MY OWN BODY and we can DISCUSS treatments, he does not dictate them to me. He WILL tell me when he disagrees or thinks a treatment path I want to take would not be best for me. I have absolute, 100% confidence is this physician and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone seeking someone in his specialty. My only regret is that he is not available as a primary care physician, only as a specialist because I would most definitely have him for my PC.
