Specialties

Dr. Richard D Brasington Jr 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.

Uncaring and not proactive

He is unresponsive and not proactive in preventing worsening conditions. It seems he does not understand what the patient is experiencing and does not seem to care about the patient's quality of life. Unsympathetic. He is also forgetful in submitting prescriptions to the pharmacy. I would recommend a doctor whom has more time for his patients and a doctor that treats conditions aggressively.

Dr. Brasington was able to take care of my sarcoid problem when no other doctor knew what to do. He is kind and caring. I am able to talk with him anytime I need. Usually if I call with a problem, he returns the call personally. I live in another state and am very willing to make the trip to see him. He sits down and talks with me and is never in a hurry.

The nicest, most caring man...

Dr. Brasington is the greatest doctor I have ever been to. He returns all of my calls himself. If I have a problem that he is confused about, he does not hesitate to tell me that he is confused...but he does everything possible to find the answer. I drive five hours round trip for my appointments with him, and if I ever move farther away I will continue to go to Dr. Brasington.
