Specialties

Dr. Jane Z Wachs 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.

My first visit with Dr. Wachs

I saw Dr. Wachs at Westmed in Yonkers. I was pleased with her bed side manner I know bedside manner because I have seen many doctor in the 25 years since I was diagnosed with RA. she I discussed my medication regime and tests that i needed to get done. She examined me and when she was finished.We went back to her office and she updated my prescriptions. She informed that she will like to see me in 8 weeks. In my opinion Dr. Wachs appears to be the type of person that is straight forward Dr.

disappointed

First visit with Dr. Wachs and I was unable to describe most of my symptoms when she said that it sounds like fibromyalgia. Felt like the visit was a total waste of my time. I would not recommend Dr. Wachs to my friends. I will not follow up with her and definitely getting another opinion.

If you can avoid going to this doctor. I would recommend it. I confirmed my appointment 3 hours before to only arrive on time to be told me appointment was earlier. After the front desk staff felt bad for me, the dr. Agreed to see me. I waited another 30 min even though I was told she wouldn't be able to see me because she had to catch a flight, for her to come in, tell me I missed my appointment, and then ask what she could do for me since it was only going to be a short visit because I was late (her staff told me the wrong time). I am in the health care profession, had to move surgeries to make my appointment to get treated like that. In fact avoid WESTMED all together. They are getting too large of them to handle. There are a few exceptions for those doctors who still actually care about pts. Select another dr. Even though they are booking out later, it should be a sign that the good ones are worth the wait.
