Dr. Melody D St John 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.

This so-called doctor needs to have her license revoked. She made diagnosis by looking at blood test from another doctor and to check fibromyalgia tender points she jabbed with fingers when you're supposed to apply pressure. Told me I had high substance p, though no test for this had been administered by her or my primary. Told me to cut out several foods, move more and gave me pill samples to take for 2 weeks. If they help my primary is supposed to prescribe them, no follow up with her, no need to come back I was told. She was condescending, didn't listen and gave the distinct impression that she thought I exaggerating my pain or as the military calls it, malingering. Oh and as others have said she basically told me I'm getting old and even tried to tell me that trouble falling asleep because my brain doesn't want to shut down is because of peri-menopause, guess I've been in peri-menopause then since I was a child. Sent me away with pills and advice to exercise more but didn't give me any guidelines as to what would be the best types of exercise. I could have slept in and saved myself the grief of dealing with this useless woman, I won't dignify her with the title of Doctor.
I have never been treated so poorly by any doctor in my whole life, she is rude, arrogant, and doesn't want to listen to your concerns. I didn't smell liquor on her like many others, but she reminded me of a mean old dried up drunk, and there is nothing worse than a mean drunk. She is the most hateful cruel person I have ever been in contact with, if it was between seeing her and dying, I will gladly die than have to ever face this woman again. I was so fed up with all of her smart mouth, sarcastic remarks to every symptom she asked me if I had, that I just started saying no to every symptom to get the heck out of there. She then just walked out of the room and left me sitting alone in a room that was so hot I was sweating for another 30 minutes. Finally someone heard me crying and came and told me I could go. I got nothing from this visit but a big bill!! Run as far as you can from this witch of a human being, she is a sorry doctor and I wouldn't take a cockroach to her!!! I really hate to think she has poor elderly patients, and is treating them the way I was treated, because she is the most abusive, hateful, supposed professional, I have ever been in contact with!!
