Specialties

Dr. Janahn C Scalapino 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.

Diagnosis

I saw Dr. Janahn Scalapino in 2013 for chronic pain, which I have had for 7 years. She diagnosed me as having Fibromyalgia. She did the usual examination, consultation, because I couldn't recall some information from 7 years ago she got annoyed with me. She then asked if I had a problem with my memory, then looked at my chart and saw that I was on Bipolar medication and her demeanor changed, it wasn't just in my head my Husband also notice. She ran the usual blood test, and said she would call with the results, she never did so I ended up calling her the receptionist told me that she said just as she suspected, nothing is wrong with me and a follow up appointment is not needed. I didn't give up went to alternative medicine She ran different tests and found that it was my hormones. I am now on special hormone creams and feel 100% better. Shame on you Dr. Scalpapino!
