An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.<br>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.

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.

Self-verified patient of Dr. Jane Alissandratos - Posted on June 10th, 2017
Dr. Jane Alissantratos retired many years ago and no longer actively practices medicine. The appointment scheduling lady, Margo, is still there, however. I called Margo about 2 months ago for an appointment with another physician in the clinic. Now - 2 months later - Margo still has never returned my call. She never was quick to return calls in the first place --- but still to not call me back after 2 months? That is inexcusable for any physician's office.

I had seen opthomologist, neurologists,endocrinologist, hematologists, and yes even a paychologist before I saw a rheumatologist and she diagnosed me with antiphospholipid antibody syndrome after our first visit and lab work was done. Thank you for believing that I was not crazy and finding out what was wrong with me!
