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.

Awful!

I went to see Dr. Posever on the recommendation of my primary care doctor. The first few visits were fine. He listened and prsscribed some medicine. Over the next few times I went back he prescribed more medicine. When he asked me how they worked by name, I couldnt tell him as I didn't know them by name. He refused to decribe which was which and then yelled at me stating that he wouldn't treat someone who wouldnt take the medicine. I was taking it, I just could not answer his question as I didnt know which medication he was aking about and since he presribed them so close together, I didn't know what was working and what wasn't. In addition, he changed his diagnosis multiple times. He said I had rheumatiod arthritis, then I didn't, then I did, then I didn't. Since I stopped going to him after he yelled at me, I still don't know what the correct diagnosis is.
