Specialties

Dr. Richard L Stein 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 best!

Dr. Stein is the most thorough and caring professional I have ever met. He actually listens to me and is willing to diagnose and treat based on symptoms, rather than on blood work alone. He diagnosed me when 4 other doctors had been unable, and his treatment has been spot-on. I am totally grateful to Dr. Stein and can most heartily recommend him.

Brilliant Doctor leaves Cleveland

This doctor was strawberry blond when he first started working with me as a patient. Over the 30 years I worked with him, he turned gray-haired. If that was my fault, I'm sorry. He is an incredible doctor, and besides the accuracy of his treatment choices, is an incredible diagnostician. Understand why he left, but I really hate to lose him. Boca Raton is too hard to get to from Cleveland every time I wish I could see him.

30 year patient relationship

Dr. Stein was my doctor for over 30 years. He was one of the few doctors that I knew actually listened to me when I had problems. I sincerely regret that he has moved to Florida from Ohio, and miss him, but wish Dr. Stein and his family well and hope life treats him as well as he always treated me.
