Specialties

Dr. James C Vandewall 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.

Physician referral

I would love to leave a review for Dr. Vandewall but his office staff refuses to let us have an appointment after a referral from a fellow physician. The call was made to Dr. Vandewall before Christmas and Dr. said he would be getting in touch with my husband. It was holiday time so we expected to wait. I made a follow up call to the office yesterday and spoke to a receptionist who said she had no information about a call. I expected her to pass the phone message onto Dr. Vandewall. It is now January 5th and we still have not gotten any call back. Office staff is unreliable.

I called this doctor because it says that he treats fibromyalgia. But when they called my PCP to say that he wouldn't treat me, it was because he doesn't treat fibromyalgia. So take it off your list of things that you treat, that shouldn't be too hard should it?

I had to call the office in Olean,Ny. for blood test results and the person who took the call and responded to me was very rude and not polite.
