Specialties

Dr. Kristin M Gowin has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Excellent Doctor

I had a severe joint problem that my doctor could not diagnose. He sent me to Dr. Gowin. She not only immediately figured out that I had Lime Disease and cured that, she also took control of the nagging arthritis problems that I have had for years. Seeing Dr. Gowin had dramatically improved my quality of life. I am so glad that I found her. I recommend her to anyone but especially any people who are having trouble with stiffness and aching joints. She also i s a very pleasant person to deal with.
