Specialties

Dr. Jeffrey S Neal 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.

Does Not Appear Patient Centered

I have had a few visits with Dr. Neal. I think he is knowledgeable in his field, however, he lacks bedside manner and definitely does not give an impression of being patient centered. He types incessantly while you talk and does not engage or make any eye contact with communication. He appears to only be interested in documentation and getting on with the next appointment. My advice to anyone considering him...see for yourself.....or pick another rheumatologist.

Two Stars

I've grown weary of Dr. Neal. You see him twice a year, he barely speaks, just types continuously on the computer. Online you can access your medical report & I saw where he'd written he discussed certain things with me - he not only didn't discuss them with me but in fact has never discussed them & some issues are very serious! The staff has you fill out a form on your current condition & I have yet to have Dr. Neal or anyone else go over my results. Waste of time to fill It out. I will be looking for another Rheumatologist.

Obnoxious Group

Rude doctor, rude staff. I have never been treated worse in my life by a medical office.The office may be busy due to the lack of rheumatologists in the area, but it certainly doesn't mean that the physician is worth the wait.

puzzled

I went to Dr. Neal several to Dr Neal several times. He was absolutely against my taking an anti anxiety med without caringthat I had been dxed with a generalized anxiety disorder. On my last visit I had an anxiety attack in the office. He kept repearing that I had better stay on the med that he had previously given me such a hard time for taking it. He also told me not to come back. He also would not help me apply for disability.I think Dr. Neal can be very patronizing and do not understand understand how could receive any award as anyone I've spoken to who saw him was unhappy with their treatment.
