Specialties

Dr. Rafael E Arsuaga has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Do Not Recommend this Doctor

This doctor was in the same practice as my doctor of 20 years. My doctor took retirement and I was transferred to Dr. Arsuaga. from day one he didn't take the time to get to know my problems and concerns. I have had rheumatoid for over 40 years and know my body. I clashed with Dr. arsuaga from day one. He has no compassion. He is arrogant, condescending and no patience. I would highly recommend that you find another doctor! Travel to another City for better care.

Scheduling/Staff Problems

As a new patient I had high hopes. Dr. Arsuaga is knowledgeable and answered my questions. It's the staff I'be had problems with. Your calls automatically go to voice mail and it takes the staff too long to call back. I called for 3 days trying to set up an appointment for a procedure, because no one called me back. I rated them 3 stars because I like Dr. Arsuaga.
