Dr. Prem Chatpar 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.

Dr. Chatpar is quite an extraordinary doctor, professional and human being. Thank you Dr. Chatpar for helping me get my life back!
I saw one of the associates and the wait times are extremely long. I was seeing the doctor about chronic pain and being on Celebrex, I needed to get blood work to see if the medicine was affecting my liver. I called a week later to get my results and it took me four calls to get a return phone call. Last week I was told they would have results for me on Tuesday and I called on Wednesday to let them know I was coming to pick them up and they indicated they weren't ready. I am still waiting, hope to get soon, but this service is terrible. All I want to do is get my results so I can go to another physician to get the treatment I need.
