Specialties

Dr. Jeanine S Connolly has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Avoid at all costs

The WORST doctor I've ever seen. In fact, she's one of the rudest people in general that I've ever encountered in a professional setting, no exaggeration. That anyone would employ her at all just baffles me. Coincidentally, I later knew a woman who worked in the office there and she said that Dr. Connolly actually treats everyone that way, not just patients.

Knee Pain

Dr Connolly is very good at what she do I always wait to the last minute to see her for my knee pain so by the time I see her my pain is a level 7-8 and within a day or two I am at level 1-2 sometimes the same day even.

Facility was great but she does need to improve in her bedside manner

The facility was great. All staff was courteous. The first meeting was a little odd. She didn't seem very warm or concerned. I have been going to her for my RA for two years now and she finally is warming up and even smiled. I stayed with her because she was recommended by my primary doctor and I have a lot of faith in him. Give her more than one visit if you can.

Knowledgeable and direct

After spending two years going from doctor to doctor, I made am glad I didn't give up and decided to make one more call. While Dr. Connolly does have a more business-like approach, she still listened to me about my symptoms, and then reviewed my background and then did her own examinations and came up with a correct diagnosis R.A. Then she tried several treatment plans till we found the right one to help me feel better and to slow the progress of the disease. She knows her area of specialty very well.

Nightmare with Connolly

Dr. Connolly was the worst physician I have ever been to. She has horrible people skills and spent 5 minutes in the room and never physically examined me, yet recommended my to be able to work full-time, WITH NO PHYSICAL EXAM!! She came in the room on my second visit and insisted she called in a drug to my pharmacy and wanted to know how it worked. I told her she never called in a prescription and she then copped an attitude with me. I checked at the pharmacy, and they confirmed she NEVER phoned in a prescription. They demand the co-pay before you can even go in the office and so when you are screwed by horrible service, they still have their greedy paws on your money. I also told the insurance company and as many people as possible what a disgrace she is to her profession. I told people waiting for her to be very careful because she is neglectful. Both visits were brief, 5 minutes max, and the whole time she stared into the computer. I had to go and pray for her because of her damage to me and future payments. Shame on her!!
