Specialties

Dr. Julio R Bravo 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.

Not caring..

This doctor could care less about his patients. You get 15 mins..If your condition changes or you have a new problem he just looks at you and offers no solution. He never reviews your last visit or lab work. He tells you he is giving you a new pain prescription without checking interactions with other medications you are taking. When asking him for blood work to check ra factors or cpt.. he said he only goes by sed.rate blood work.He is lazy and burned out..and you are just another $300.00 in his pocket..He never post his Dr. ..notes on my chart..I encourage you to seek treatment elsewhere..

Does Dr Bravo treat Osteoporosis?

I have been to Dr Bravo, however it's been several years. I have severe Osteoporosis, I had been going to a Endocinologyist in the past for this, however, now he went to the veterans association. Since I was Dr Bravo's patient in the past and had a lot of respect for him, I wanted to see if he also treated Osteoporosis?

WHY?

I drove over 70 miles to see this doctor. It was my first - and last-visit. Perhaps it was a bad day for him, but he never examined me in any shape, form, or fashion. He read the reports my FNP had sent and the information I had sent. He re-ordered a blood test I had had 2 months earlier and prescribed Requip for my RLS. He asked me no questions about my conditions, offered no advice, nothing! I walked out in disbelief that I had traveled that far for so little care and concern. It was even worse when I got the bill....$400 for an office visit where he spent maybe 15 min. Another $233 for the blood work that wasn't necessary. A waste of time and money!
