Dr. Pooja Banerjee 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.

My rheumatologist retired & she was one of the rheumatologist recommended that i transfer my care to. i When trying to discuss my needs on the phone, she cut me off repeatedly every time I tried to say anything & stated my care with her was withheld until i see a gastroenterologist due to anemia. (My blood count had actually improved over the last several months & was better than when I had major bone surgery earlier this year). I can understand asking me to see a gastroenterologist, but I don't understand canceling my appointment with her that week & withholding my rheumatology care (including infusion meds) until seeing & getting full gastroenterologist & having full work up, (which will take several weeks), because she said wants faced report of their completed findings. This leaves me a time of increased pain & difficulty for an extended period of time & complicates my progression in other areas of treatment which I am receiving.
I have been seeing Dr. Banerjee for 4 or 5 years now. I hope I will always have her as my rheumatologist. I was in a horrible situation when I first went to her. I was very sick and had no idea what was wrong. She actually spent 3 hours with me (in and out) in the exam room on my first visit. She is a dear, dear person and knows what she is doing. I feel so very fortunate to have her as my doctor.
If I could rate her a zero or less I would. I've been in healthcare for 10 years and I've never met a more unprofessional and hateful physician. She insulted my adult son (the patient) and myself. She was extremely rude to me over the phone. She interrupted me and would not listen to anything I was trying to tell her. She continue to threaten to hang up on me and fire my son as a patient. I was never rude to her. She started the phone call annoyed and angry with me. She ultimately did hang up on me and told me to tell my son to find another Rheumatologist. He went to her for help. Followed all of her advice. She had zero sympathy for him. Someone like her has no business in the medical field. Her bedside manner is absolutely pitiful. If you're looking for a Rheumatologist or someone to help your pain, look elsewhere. You'll get nothing but a fat bill from this one.
The receptionist is. Very pleasant and Professional however the nurse Joann is very rude and non professional. Dr Banerjee needs a Mo pleasant nurse. Fi love it when the receptionist does both front and also the nurses job. She is one of a kind. But I'm searching for another Rheumatologist because I just can't stand her nurse joan
You should never use this doctor. She is rude and her office staff is nasty. On each visit you wait at LEAST 45 minutes just to move to the room. Then you have to wait in there. The nurse is never nice and makes it seem like you are a problem when you ask questions. The doctor isn't understanding of the conditions in which she is a doctor. The pain and additional problems with Arthritis she has no time for. DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR, YOU WILL BE SORRY!
