Specialties

Dr. Patrick K Timms 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.

Completely Satisfied

My first visit was thoroughly completed, he listened all through my session. He listened carefully and ask the questions I wanted to hear. I look forward to seeing again next month. I can say he's caring and thorough, I was totally comfortable and pleased with some of the concern's that he was sharing, I felt like he had been my doctor for year's.

I do not recommend this doctor

Dr. Timms never made eye contact with me. He asked me two questions, did a 2 minute exam, and gave me a diagnosis. He wrote me a script for so much labwork but never explained what he was testing for or why. From the moment he walked in he appeared rude. He sat with his back towards me and spoke so low I could barely hear him. When I asked him to repeat himself, he showed his annoyance. He is not personable at all. His staff was ok. I believe I was misdiagnosed. He never explained why I was diagnosed with my illness or what the diagnosis meant.

Worse dr I have ever seen

I would never recommend anyone to see him. Like other's said he has a horrible bedside manner. My biggest issue with him and his nurse is getting my medicines refilled on time. They could care less about their patients.

Solid rheumatologist

I've had connective tissue disease for a long time and have been to more than a few rheumatologists in my day. Dr. Timms is solid. He addresses the important stuff -organ damage, prognosis, joint damage, etc and of course I can imagine his practice is very busy, so it might not be for you if you aren't familiar yet with your disease or are particularly needy. I've learned a long time ago to be grateful for normal labs and that unhappiness is not a medical disease to expect doctors to fix for you.
