Dr. Marlon L Hermitanio 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.

Dr. Hermatanio has been treating me for rheumatoid arthritis for almost 15 years. He is pleasant, professional and very knowledgeable about the disease. When Dr. moved out of the area I was seeing him, I found out where he located and immediately traveled the distance in order to keep him as my Dr. I thank him for all his help in my arthritis issues.
Dr. Hermitanio is thorough, caring, and competent. He takes the time to call if there is any change in treatment. A nurse that was working in a different department was talking to me about my treatment and follow-up. She said she was going to schedule and appointment for her mother with him, a high compliment from medical staff.
Dr. Hermitanio takes a personal interest in how I am doing. He always calls with lab results personally. Also, recently there was a problem with my heart that was possibly related to my disease, so he referred me to a cardiologist, but actually called my home later to find out how things were going in that regard. That really impressed me.
Very hard to understand what he was telling me. I made an appt with himas he is a rumatologist and I thoughtthey treated people wit arthiritis andfibromyalgia. He sent me back to my family docotr. I was not referred to him by my family doctor, but requestedDr. Gardon to refer me to him. As myback surgery was a success but I had paindue to other things in my body. Not happy at all when I left.
