Specialties

Dr. Michael D Guma 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.

Would not see this doctor again. Does not listen to patient, only believes what test results show. Treated me like I was wasting his time. No compassion.

Five Stars

My neurologist recommended Dr. Guma after my primary dr. sent me to an orthopedic dr. and his recommendation was to "wait and see" after my index finger swelled up like a balloon and then the joints started to become inflamed and crooked. Dr. Guma's physician's assistant, Hilary Sugar, did a host of blood work on me. On my follow-up visit, Dr. Guma told me I had psoriatic arthritis, which accounted for the rapid swelling of my finger, since psoriatic arthritis advances quickly. I was also diagnosed with a virus that I had for years that remains dormant in most people, but became active in me twice, and not one doctor or the hospital has been able to diagnose. He is great! I wouldn't give him up for the world!!

This doctor really cares about me and my health !!!

Dr Guma was the only doctor besides my ex-wife that spent the time to diagnose my condition and how it needed to be treated. In my opinion there is NO better in the field of arthritis then Dr. Guma.

Dr Guma and staff are the BEST!

Dr Guma and his PA Hillary and his staff are some of the finest healthcare professionals I have ever known. I was diagnosed with RA and they have been supportive, flexible, and caring for over 6 years of my treatment. I have had several insurance changes, and when I've had to go to other Doctors I always come back to Dr. Guma.
