Specialties

Dr. Nancy B Allen 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.

waste of precious time

Waited 5 months to see her. What a disappointment. She didn't read the records from my precious doctor. Gave no advice nor medication for my arthritis. Did not invite or encourage questions. She was so ill prepared that in the summary of the visit she wrote she described me as being of a race that I am not. I really expected her to be a good doctor from what I read of her on the Duke website. I'm so disappointed. I have been bedridden for 4 years and she concluded the appointment by saying "come back if it gets worse." How much worse did she want it to be before she would treat my arthritis so that I can lead a normal life? I have found a new doctor who is wonderful. She is treating my arthritis and I am doing much better. I suspect that Duke only displays the glowing reviews on their website.
