Specialties

Dr. Michael S Thakor 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.

Happy patient

He is the best doctor ever. I dealt with a dr where i live and after a year and half of him doing absolutely nothing to help, I went for a second opinion and found Dr. Thakor. I am beyond happy. He didn't waste any time in help to ease the pain and has been doing so since. I will never change doctor's again. If you have trouble with arthritis (RA) he is the one! I'm so glad he's around to help!!!

It's difficult getting an appointment quickly. He is booked for several months in advance. Overall, he's well worth the wait. Bedside manner and time spent with you is great. He listens!!! Only complaint is trying to get in to see him.
