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.

Self-verified patient of Dr. Prachi Anand - Posted on September 12th, 2018
First time appointment that took forever to see a doctor name Gary Rosenblum who also see patients at Nassau Medical Center. Well I never got the chance to see Him, only Dr. Prachi Anand. As soon as she came in the room her energy was not accepting. She never ask how I was doing or the reason for my visit to the office. Dr. Anand only looked at my paper work given by the physician assistant and said they could not help me, because I do not have any signs of auto immune disease. After that was said the Dr. then directed her conversation only to the assistant ask for my hands to see my fingers, my palm, and slightly felt on my elbow. Then looked at me and said again this office cannot help me, I need to go elsewhere. Her practice only see patients who suffers from auto immune disease and I should be thankful I do not have any of them. When I finally got a chance to get a word in to ask questions she was very defensive. When I ask for Dr. Rosenblum because that's who I came to see, she stated......... He would agree with what I'm saying and If I want to see him privately I need to set up an appointment to see him at his affiliated office at Winthrop Hospital, she's the "Chief" here at Nassau for Rheumatology. With that being said I never saw Dr. Rosenblum, my voice was never heard regarding my situation, and I was not help in any kind of way. Just was told sorry I can't help you!!! So I wasted my time & $8.50 in parking fees to sit in an office. BE AWARE AND BE CAREFUL!!!!!
A doctor with empathy

From day 1. Dr. anand has made me feel comfortable. I have been under her care for over 2 years want each visit she listens to my many complaints and treated me based on how I was feeling. Most doctors don't listen to their patients. They think because they are doctors they know how u should be feeling at what stage. Dr Anand takes the time to listen and run test to help me feel at ease and I greatly appreciate(d) that personal touch. Thank you doctor for having treating me like a person and not just a patient.
