Specialties

Dr. Rajat K Dhar Sr 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.

The office staff are so rude and doesn't care about patient condition. Doctor doesn't even care about patient's condition and doesn't spend time. He prescribes medicines without proper diagnosis

Very good rheumatologist

Dr. Dhar is very knowledgable and was great in diagnosing my rheumatoid arthritis. He Ran specific tests to pin it down as it was the very early stages. Within one year I was cured and the rheumatoid arthritis into remission.

review

Been seeing this Dr for past 9 months. Despite several office visits and literally thousands of dollars worth of testing (particularly very rare and EXPENSIVE bloodwork) I've only been on one med that does not seem to be making a significant difference. Once these numerous tests have been completed, you don't get a call back and must wait till the next office visit, which may be 3 or 4 months away. Getting prescriptions called in is an absolute nightmare, and may take well over a week or two to get authorized, hearing comments like "we're working short staffed" and "we only address this stuff on Fridays and don't know that we're going to get to it today" My PCP has not received any referral letter and/or progress reports. I feel as though I've wasted the better part of a year trying to get the right fit of medication to feel better.
