Dr. Joseph J Fanciullo has the following 2 specialties
- 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.
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.

Dr Fanciullo is with all of us want to the doctor. I always believed that a great doctor was like a good pair of shoes, it had to be the right fit! He made clear one time to me by saying he was the doctor, he knew medicine… But I was the patient and I knew my own body… And we need to work together! He always listens, taking in my thoughts and concerns. I am always confident in my treatment from Dr. Fanciullo & know he is doing everything possible for my treatment to be a success in my life to be the best it can be
Dr. Fancioullo is most certainly one of the outstanding physicians I have had in my lifetime. I will start by saying I have seen a few other rheumatologists in the Sioux Falls area, none of whom I felt at ease with, so I kept searching and was fortunate to find him. I have a rare genetic disease, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS), that until recently not very many physicians, including rheumatologists knew much about. This is of great importance because EDS is a connective tissue disorder that affects joints significantly. He ties for the shortest waiting room time with my daughters pediatrician, and yet (like my daughters pediatrician, he spends all the time I feel I need at my appointments. If this review helps you give Dr. Fanciullo a try, please tell him about my review. We all have differing opinions of physicians we have seen. I imagine Dr. Fanciullo to be able to connect well with just about anyone. I am so confident about this, I am going to make one of my teenaged daughter's first rheum appt with him. She also has EDS and has seen MANY different healthcare providers. She is also hard to impress!
