Specialties

Dr. Midori J Nishio 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.

I had to wait over an hour plus she prescribed medication that had a severe dangerous reaction to a medication I was on! She should have checked my medication list before prescribing any new medications !

Dr. had no compassion or empathy for my ailment. She also made negative comments about other patients in front of me. Not very professional!

Great Doctor

She really cares about her patients as people, not just treating a disease. I have been seeing her since 1998. Difficult to find such a good doctor. Once with the patient, her attention is on you. Her office staff is also great.

Great Rheumatologist

Dr. Nishio is a fantastic doctor because she treats the person, not only the disease. The reason there is a wait for your appointment is that she spends the necessary time to treat each patient completely. She really cares for her patient and patient's life quality. Many diseases in Rheumatology will not kill you. However, they can make life quite difficult and painful. Dr. Nishio wants her patients to have a good quality of life. Please do choose another doctor so her practice does not fill up.
