Specialties

Dr. Renee Z Rinaldi-Ballard 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.

superior doctor with organizational issues

I've been with Dr. Rinaldi and know she is one of the top researchers, teachers and practitioners in RA. She is an astoundingly smart and unfailingly kind woman. She has a almost comedic rotation of front staff and nursing assistants who look like they either just graduated, or will be graduating soon. Not the most organized system, so it behooves the patient to stay on top of follow ups, labs, changes in meds, etc. You may ask for something on their voicemail - and they may do it - but they'll never call u back to tell u! You must be on top of it, but Dr Rinaldi is very worth it!
