Dr. Jyothsna R Rayadurg 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. Rayadurg is an amazing doctor. After not having much luck with my previous Rheumatologist, I gave up seeing a Rheumatologist for 8 years. Then I decided to give Dr. Rayadurg a try and it was the best decision I made. She is very thorough and listens to everything. Plus, she even follow up on issues I brought up on my previous appointments.
Hi, I am a 25 year-old male who had been suffering (for over 10 years) from chronic lower back/buttock pain and debilitating symmetrical pains throughout my body. I can't tell you how many worthless GP's, orthropedic doctors, and even chiropractors I had seen prior to meeting Dr. Rayadurg for my first rheumatology appointment. One of the aforementioned doctors even said: 'You don't have AS, it's a sero-positive condition'...which is a blatant falsehood. To the point, Dr. Rayadurg diagnosed me within one appointment and changed my life with effective medication and lifestyle recommendations. She asks many questions and listens carefully to my answers - she is also very up on the latest research regarding my condition, often offering information that I wasn't aware of despite extensive online research.
I have been seeing Dr Rayadurg since 1999. Initially I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, but later on a more concise diagnosis of PA (Psoriatic Arthritis) had been identified. The meds Dr Rayadurg prescribed has been extremely helpful in controlling the flare ups. She takes great interest in patient care and alleving pain! She is fantastic.
