Dr. Kristi V Mizelle 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.

She is so knowledgeable. I was impressed with her preventive approach from the beginning of the first visit. Very upbeat, courteous, and thorough. She listens to you then runs blood work and very quickly meets with you again with the results and what the approach will be. This doctor is a real keeper. I love her confidence.
I waited three months to have an appointment with this doctor because she was just recently becoming part at TPM G practice in Newport News Virginia. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia because she said that I was tender and 11 out of 15 areas on my body. Anna diagnosis consist of having six areas tender. There was one area on my arm that when she pressed on actually hurt. All of the other areas felt nothing like that one spot she pressed on. Yet she continued to press and rub certain areas while continuously asking me if it was at all painful or uncomfortable. Eventually I answered yes because I was uncomfortable having her continually Russ and Rob certain areas of my back and lower abdomen. I do not think the doctor should be able to put on your medical chart that you have a diagnosis of fibromyalgia just because they said I reported several areas being uncomfortable. So now I'm labeled with fibromyalgia and there is sent any real treatment that she could provide... It was a waste of my money and time. And I still have not obtained a reasonable diagnosis related to my medical issues. She also told me that my chief complaint from which everything (joint and pain issues) started wasn't at all related to my current condition. So basically refused to except my my explanation regarding the onset of my current medical issues. I find that horribly judgmental and unprofessional. Hopefully others will not have the same experience but if you do, do not let someone tell you and document and your medical record something you disagree with. I suppose we have to ask for a second opinion before they diagnose us with a chronic condition from just poking and rubbing muscles and tendons.
The best doctor I've seen! She took so much time with me and cared about fibromyalgia as an illness instead of dismissing it like so many doctors do. She got me on track with a good treatment plan. She moved from Baltimore to Southern VA, that's the only reason I don't see her anymore. Highly recommend her, she is kind and compassionate. She makes you feel like a person instead of just another insurance check.
