Specialties

Dr. Priya M Damaraju 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.

One Star

I had 2 appointments with Dr. Damaraju. I waited over an hour past my scheduled appointment time for both appointments. For the second appointment, the waiting room was so crowded, I had to sit on the floor in the waiting room after I gave up my chair for an elderly woman (the office staff did not make any effort to find a seat for her even after she advised them that the waiting room was full). Because I have fibromyalgia I am in constant pain, and sitting on the floor was very uncomfortable. In the end, Dr. Damaraju's advice to me to deal with the chronic fibromyalgia pain was to take a walk every day. I will not be returning for any follow-up appointments.
