Specialties

Dr. Ravi M Bhalla 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.

BAD, BAD EXPERIENCE!! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH DR. BHALLA!!!!!!!

Dr. Bhalla walked into the exam room and after less than a minute of looking at my hands did he tell me that I did not indeed have RA. That I was healthy as can be. He then told me not to come back, that I was as healthy as can be. He didn't even read my transferred records that I had from my previous Rheumy for 12 years (change of Insurance). I do have RA and it is a severe form. I left and didn't look back but I knew better to find a decent Doctor. Some people may listen to him and his nonsense....... DO NOT SEE HIM!!!!!

Two Stars

Dr. Bhalla is soft spoken, but doesn't spend time with me, doesn't offer any information but is often ready to prescribe things which isn't what I'm after. He also just leaves the room without asking if there are any questions or anything. I've often thought he was coming back, but he doesn't... Not a very interactive doc who doesn't talk much...

Best doctor ever

Doctor Bhalla has been my rheumatologist since 11 years ago. He's always been caring and very knowledgeable. He has shown lots of compassion for me and always listens to what I have to say. I would never go anybody else.

Wonderful, hardworking doctor

Dr. Bhalla is intensely set on finding a way to help me with my chronic pain. He diagnosed me with fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. He is not overly friendly, but he is efficient and quick, trying something different each time, if necessary (which it has been, so far). I am glad I was referred to him by a friend.
