Specialties

Dr. Laura S Zaacks has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Sigh. I will not bore anybody reading this with long details but rather will sum it up by stating that she was VERY dismissive regarding some symptoms I had -probably because I have Fibromyalgia and it is easy to blame it for everything you might have going on with you, BUT because she was dismissive and didn't do further tests (only relied on bloodwork - which you can be seronegative and STILL have the illness) I was not diagnosed properly. I have RA - I just happen to be seronegative as confirmed by another physician. Unfortunately, she missed the mark and I will not go back to her again because of her negligence.
