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.

I have been seeing Dr. Thomas close to 3 1/2 yes now. I was referred by the Dr in carson when she had to closes due to family issues.Getting my first appt was no problem, but going in the office was. Dr. Thomas was fantastic and still is. The office staff was rude and u professional. I use to Work in a dr office so 8knowhow the staff should act. The second time I came INI was treated bad again and told Dr Thomas about it. I told her if I hadn't been put on disability due to RA, OA and Fibromyalgia I would train them the way they should already be acting. The next. visit I saw Different People dr thomas said she would talk to her partners. I don't appreciate being left standing in front of the pt window being ignored especially when I'm in pain. Dr. Thomas goes the extra mile to find the right medications for me. When my liver tests kept coming back abnormal she didn't rest until she personnaly called the GI error consult and appt. I was called by dr. Thomas herself withe the info. She goes the extra mile and does what ever is needed to help her pts. I've talked to a lot of other pts in the office and they agree. I was DX with RA at age 13 and currently 52yrs old, I have pain every day and Dr. Thomas is keeping me moving. I really appreciate everything she does for me, and the fact she calls me immediately after getting the results from my blood tests. Give her a chance and let her know if the office staffs is less then Professional. (She wants to know)). I hope she never quits also, congrats on HDR new baby daughter.
Dr Thomas is one of the most caring doctors I have ever had. She is willing ti spend the necessary time with you and follows through. I wish her office staff were that good. I am left on hold for 10 to 15 minutes each time I call. Her assistance never does what she says she will do. I have to call 4 x to get her to phone in an rx. She says she has done it, but the pharmacy says no. Really gets old. Wish Dr Thomas would get rid of them all and start with a new staff. She deserves better (and so do I!).
My mom started going to Dr. Thomas a litttle over a year ago. She had been seeing a woman doctor in Carson City who was absolutely NO help at all and could never properly diagnose my mom. I'm happy to say that this doctor did properly diagnose my mom, and she finally is pretty much pain free. She is not easy to get in to. It does take time to get an appointment with this office and doctor, so be patient.
Dr. Thomas took time with my son, she asked the right questions, she did not rush so when something else came to her mind she was still with him to ask. She gave him great information and never pushed her treatment but gave him the options with information and let him decide. She is wonderful!
