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 having a particular painful, problem for the last six months. I have been to several doctors and it just seems that none of them have TIME FOR YOU!!! Dr. Kempf came in, pulled up a chair (had someone else typing notes into a computer so he could actually look me in the eye and listen to what I had to describe) and LISTENED!! After spending about 20 minutes with me, he said he was not the kind of doctor I needed and proceeded to POINT ME IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION...Other doctors I have gone to have just pushed me to the next person! This man is a TRIBUTE to his profession. If only we had more doctors like him!
