Specialties

Dr. Philip J Mease 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.

This doctor was highly recommended by other practitioners. He is average at best. Dr. Mease seems to have boxes drawn out in his head and people need to to fit neatly within them. You are seen by his staff then every few appointments he makes an appearance in the exam room. If you have a straight forward condition I am sure he's a great doctor.

Arrogant appointment scheduler

The office administrator Susan is arrogant; she has no empathy for patients. She gives unreasonable appointments. She does not try to help patients. As if she is the Dr She tries to dictate patients health matter. Dr Mease is an outstanding doctor; however if you looking for more attention and a one to one care it is not the right place for you;atleast with current OA in place. I suggest Dr Mease finds a better appointment scheduler to maintain his great service to his patient.

Best bedside/exam manner of any doctor I've met in my 60 years. Caring, professional, excellent diagnostician (make sure he reviews all of his PA and assistant's work--they're still learning from him. Unless you have Nicole, then she is almost as good as Dr Mease is. I will take any family member to him--as I did my wife--and recommend him to anyone, without exception. And Tricare WILL cover him if you fight/write them.
