Specialties

Dr. Joel M Kremer 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.

Long association

I've known Dr Kremer since he was a resident and worked with Dr Bartholomew - approximately a 40 year time period. He has always had a deep concern for my well-being as an arthritis patient and in my personal life. He is compassionate and very knowledgeable about my form of arthritis. I've enjoyed my long association with this great doctor.

FANTASTIC DOCTOR

I have been seeing Dr. Kremer since 1992. He diagnosed my problem and has closely followed me for the last 19 years. I have had MANY set backs and unusual things happed that do not follow the usual symptons. He has been very careful in prescribing medications, sending me for tests and other specialists if he felt it was needed. I feel that it has been his knowledge and dedication that has kept me functioning as well as I do. He has been very thorough. I have seen A LOT OF DOCTORS through this illnes, Dr. Kremer is BY FAR the one that I have the most confidence in and count on. I kringe when I think of what my medical situation would be without him as my physican.
