Dr. Ralf G Thiele 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.

Complete lack of medical care.....

When I saw this Dr. ,he spent 3 minutes with me to tell me that I basically wasn't worth his time. When my Dr. called the practice to schedule me with someone who actually was interested in doing their job, I was put right back with him. I asked how hearing him say things twice was a second opinion. He refused to allow other drs. in the practice to take my case. Fast forward 4 years..... my Dr. again referred me to this practice. Same lack of medical care , only this time they didn't even bother to actually examine me. They said they read my chart & to go to another sp3cialist. If they had indeed actually read my chart, they would have clearly seen that I had already been seen by that specialist. I would not recommend this dr. to my worst enemy. I am amazed that someplace like U of R would have him on staff.
