Dr. Pascale M Schwab 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.

Dr. Schwab replaced another Dr who had been treating me for a few years. In her first appointment with me she performed a thorough exam; more so than the previous several rheumatologists who have treated my condition. She drew her own conclusions, made recomendations, and ultimately helped more than any previous doctor. On top of that, she noticed many other things of concern and referred me to other clinics to follow up. I am gratefull for Dr. Schwab who has literally put me back on my feet, and would recommend her to anyone with an arthritic condition.
My overall experience turned out to be extremely disappointing due to the lack of being made to feel that time was wasted and that mental health was viewed to be more important that physical diagnosis. My likes that yes,she made sure to wash hands according to protocols. Dislikes on the other hand was being made to feel inapt and uncaring when patient is supposedly given an assessment of their condition as a mental health issue. Therefore, there was absolutely no professional medical opinions made when assisting another provider. It is vital for healthcare providers to value the patient and not allow personal morals and or ethical views to override the necessary medical assessment when evaluating a patient. Additionally, making sure that a patients' medical records has been reviewed and recievement of a complete re-evaluation should have been acted upon. There is absolutely no room for personal views, beliefs and judgement is made putting a patients health at risk.
