Dr. Peggy Ann A Garjian 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.

Never responds to calls, Diagnosis made one week may be different from what she diagnosed in the past-Never bothers to look at Blood work, Makes the receptionists discuss medical questions, keeps you waiting for up to 3 hours and doesn't bother apologizing, but shell find the need to have an attitude that is so so unprofessional . Screams and curses about patients and to her staff on a regular basis. Talks about her personal problems rather than the patients. There's just not enough room to state all the terrible things that have to be said.
