Dr. Patrick Box 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.

Not all in my head

I was a patient for over 2 years and in that time I was in pain for the better part of it. The pain was so bad that I was in tears at nearly every visit because nothing he did for me seemed to work. Dr. Box began to treat me as those I was inconveniencing him, and I no longer felt that he was listening to my needs. I finally fired Dr. Box and changed to another Rheumatologist. I learned from the new Dr. that Dr. Box had put in my chart notes that I was emotional and that the pain was all in my head. He also indicated that I was just seeking medication. Needless to say, after switching Dr.s, being put on Remicade, and changing/finding the proper dosages of my meds, I have been virtually pain-free for the last 2 years. The only trouble I have is during flare-ups which just happen. I would never recommend Dr. Box because of the way he treated me when he couldn't figure out how to help me.

very dedicated

Dr Patrick Box takes his work very seriously. He will look at everything , blood work, xrays, and although its hard to get answers when you call. When you do get in to see him, you will find out things you didn't expect. For example, I didn't know I had some vitamin problems.
