Dr. John A Albert 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.

Dr Albert has been seeing me for sometime. I have psoriatic and inflammatory arthritis. He has made every effort to try what might work. I asked him to please agree to acupuncture. He wrote a permission slip to my insurance at the time and I was able to go. It help tremendously. Along with western medicine. Nice to know a Dr is willing to try more than one treatment. One do not work for all. Thank you Dr Albert.
Dr. Albert diagnosed my mom with possible lung hypertension and went out of his way to get her in touch with doctors that could help give her a definite diagnosis and treatment. He continued to follow her progress as if she was one of his own patient's. He is a doctor that takes the time to look at the whole picture of what's going on with each patient and if he can't treat the problem he will find a doctor that can.
Very attentive and prompt. Had a terrible experience with a prior rheumatologist, and Dr Albert was the complete opposite. He was concerned with my pain, addressed all my concerns and answered all my questions, and encouraged me to call at ANY time with additonal questions or concerns. Would highly recommend.
