Dr. Kate T Queen 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 Queen always made me feel like I was special and she was truly concerned about my health 3yr later I was diagnosed with scleroderma .Dr Queen was patience and persistent . I can not say enough nice things about her she made me feel like her friend not just a patient. Dr Queen would call me at home with a concerned voice to tell me about my blood work didn't mater how late I love her for that .Once I was in the hospital with a bad case of strap in my lungs .That first night I was admitted she was on her way home from Taxes she came by late that night to see me before she went home how many Dr's would do that .
