Specialties

Dr. Linda I Ray has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

  • 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.

Dr. Ray was my Pediatric Rheumatologist and I Loved her. I would come in and the staff would know me by name. She could answer any question I had day or night. If I was in severe pain she would diagnose me sometimes over the phone if I was not in for a visit. If I was in the hospital for any other reason she would be their to visit me. She was the best doctor I ever had. She went over and beyond for me and her other patients.

A walking disaster!

Our first encounter:After waiting 4 months to get an appointment with her, she spent 2 minutes in the room with my child and blew the diagnosis. A regular dermatologist diagnosed the condition within 30 seconds (some 4 months later). We then had to go back to Dr. Ray because the condition is considered auto-immune. She tells us she is going to order blood work then doesn't order it and doesn't write up the record so that it can be ordered. Expensive tests are run and then she does not write up the results in the record so that the other doctors caring for my child can know what is going on with the case.It is unfortunate that she is the only pediatric rheumatologist available in the area.
