Specialties

Dr. Joel Shavell has the following 2 specialties

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

  • 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.

Don't risk your health or time

In my opinion, he is a joke. Before I even sat down and before he had my records, he had his mind made up and told me I should get a third opinion. My dermatologist, prev rheumatologist, current Dr. Office that has several different rhematoligsts that have reviewed my records that all agree with my condition, I was in a drug study for patients with lupus for more than 14 months, I had lab results from a skin biopsy that said lupus or rowels syndrome, plus other labs that were accepable to get me in a drug study, and he still says there is no problem with my skin rash or my health... It is not lupus per this Dr. All of my pain and discomfort are not enough for me to miss work. He does IME's. He's rude and not worth risking your health with this office.

Does not care about his patients, makes it a point to let you know that the only reason he is seeing you is to maintain his lifestyle. STAY AWAY FROM THIS DOCTOR.

DO NOT see this man if you value your health. He does not think spending time with his patients is a good use of his resources. He will likely tell you that any pain you feel is all in your head. He is way more concerned about himself rather than his patients.
