Dr. Joseph P Michalski 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.

Wont spend too much time. Very rude behavior. No aggressive treatment for RA

I was diagnosed with JRA by him in a hospital. Since than I was visting monthly for my RA. He is always on time , very little waiting time in the waiting room. Always punctual on time. But he is not a good listener. My RA was progressive and was damaging my joints, but he was not aggressive to stop it. He did not put me on any kind of DMARDs. Because of him , not treating me well and I lost my cartilage on my hips and will have to go through hip replacement. Other Rheumatologists that I have seen told me about the past treatment. The madication that he prescribed was not DMARDs. He is very arrogant and do not care much about patients, not a good listener. He cares about money only. I would not recommand him to anybody.
