Dr. Jonathan D Krant has the following 2 specialties
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.

Krant has a practice in the Hamptons. I can only presume he treats those clients better. Although I have a rare disorder, Krant did not bother to review my records. Changed a fourteen year diagnosis made by three other board certified rheumatologist without rationale and sent me for a needed brace without any instructions regarding my condition. His office staff is rarely available and consistently rude. There are better rheumatologist elsewhere. Krant just occupies space in the under used new center buildings at Adirondack Health. He is more than part time; he is simply not here.
Very rude staff both in person and on the phone. Dr. Krant spends very little time with you, then you have to deal with his very rude staff. Better to find another doctor.
After two weeks of being told I had a virus and then told it might not be a virus but they didn't know what was wrong, by my doctors interns, I went to see Dr. Krant. He looked at me and told me I either had Lupus or RA because of the butterfly rash on my face. By this time I was on a low dose of steroids just to be able to walk and even that hurt. Every muscle and joint was stiff and nothing relieved it. My ankles, feet, and lower legs were swollen along with my wrists. When both blood tests came back negative, Dr. Krant told me to stop taking my prednisone (only later did I learn I should have weaned off of them) and I should be fine now. When I asked him what was wrong, that I knew something was still wrong, he said "you have fibromyalgia". Just like that. No point test. Nothing. After going to three support meetings, I realized my symptoms were nothing like people with fibromyalgia. Two years later, after I switched primary doctors, my new doctor discovered that in my files a year after my misdiagnosis with Krant, an xray showed nodes throughout both my lungs. Long story short, after having a lung biopsy, I have sarcoidosis. It has now spread to my eyes, sinuses, liver, spleen and possibly my heart. It's also suspected to be in my muscles and bones. I don't know if not being diagnosed with the righ diagnoses sooner would have made a difference but this guy needs to go back to medical school. My symptoms were classic bone sarcoidosis symptoms. This guy shouldn't even have a license!
