Specialties

Dr. Prashanth R Palwai has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

VERY RUDE. He cut me off mid-sentence more than once. He never put one single hand on me. NO EXAM. When I asked if my symptoms could be arthritis, he asked me to show him my hands, then answered 'NO' without ever touching me or doing any blood labs. As I was looking at my notes to ask more questions, he got up and started to walk out of the room. I found a new dr. who did blood work & turns out, I indeed have arthritis - a genetic form that is VERY RARE. DO NOT RECOMMEND to anyone.
