Specialties

Dr. Jeffrey S Scheib 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.

I feel like Dr Scheib saved my life, I was barely tolerating my bursitis until he gave me an injection. I have my life back I can't thank him enough. He has the friendliest staff, and he is so caring and understanding, I can't imagine going anywhere else. Thank you so much, Pam

Kudos for Dr. Jeffrey Scheib

I had the good fortune of being accepted as a patient of Dr. Scheib. On my first visit he spent a lot of time with me and studied my lengthy file. He is focused on finding the correct diagnosis for his patients. I have never had any physician take my file home to read in the evening. He had a large number of labs done during the first visit. It confirmed what he already thought, that a diagnosis of Lupus by one of my other physicians had been in error. He explained how that can occur. I also was having severe pain my arms. I could not even take the bed cover off my arms due to the pain. This is under good control thanks to Dr. Scheib. Dr. Scheib suggested to me that another of my specialists might want to give me a RX which would help some problems. I asked the other doctor about it and was prescribed the RX which is helping me very much to manage some of the symptoms. I don't see Dr. Scheib as rude or arrogant. I see a doctor who cares about his patients and tries to give them the best medical care. He has always listened to me and has patiently answered my questions. I appreciate everything he has done for me.

Dr. Scheib has been the best Rheumatologist I have seen in several years. I had been to two other local rheumatologist before being treated by him. I was previously misdiagnosed by the other rheumatologist, but Dr. Scheib ran the necessary test to determine the best route for my treatment. He has always been courteous, professional, and has always taken the time to explain my treatment plan. He makes me feel relaxed and able to talk about any changes I feel may be needed. Since being under Dr. Scheibs care, I have been able to continue to improve my activities from the smallest details, such as brushing my hair to enjoying my hobby of hiking. Both were nearly impossible for me previously. Dr.Scheib even worked me in to be seen during an injury and never made me feel rushed or as if I were an inconvenience to his busy schedule. I appreciate him and his staff immensly and cannot speak highly enough of them and the level of care I receive
