Dr. Marisa S Klein-Gitelman has the following 3 specialties
- Pediatric 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.
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.

Dr. Klein-Gitelman is an excellent physician. She is kind, and made my child very comfortable during the visit. She is very thorough and really spends quality time for evaluation. Additionally, she provides explanation to all present and takes the time to answer all questions. As a physician myself, I was very impressed by Dr. Klein-Gitelman's expertise, and would highly recommend her to anyone.
Dr. Klein - Gitelman, treats the whole patient not just the condition. She has been treating my daughter for the last 6 years and treats the physical symptoms as much as the pyschological symptoms of living with pain and being "different" from other children. She is actively involved in the Arthritis community and has been a great resource and support system for parents (especially for those with newly diagnosed children). I would highly recommend Dr. Klein Gitelman to any patient! The wait time is very long because it is a teaching hospital and the sheer volume of patients, but we've made the most of our time there by reading, doing homework, etc. The nurses and support staff are exceptionally nice and accomodating. However, you must make your next appointment before you leave or it will be very difficult to get time in her schedule.
Dr. Klein-Gitelman has a very courteous staff as well as very impressive credentials. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to get an appointment with her unless you are making it 3 or 4 months in advance, and when you are there, you'd better be prepared for an hour wait. For the time spent waiting, you don't get much time with Dr. K-G. Overall, however, she is a good doctor though.
