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.

I think he is a very good physician. I'm very sad that it won't be too long until he fully retires. I will certainly miss him.
Dr. Leff is an average doctor. I found him to be fairly personable but when it came to my medical history and diagnoses, it was clear that he had not done his job of reading my medical file. In fact, at his request, I incurred substantial expense seeing other specialists. Those other specialists first asked if Dr. Leff had tried the other options they previously listed in my medical chart. He had not, so the other specialists simply tried the first alternate treatment. This was already spelled out in my medical record (which Dr. Leff has immediate access to; I don't) so if Dr. Leff had simply DONE HIS JOB and read my chart, he would have known to try this. Instead, he threw his hands up saying he didn't know what to do and sent me to see the other specialists. He wasted my time and money by not taking the time to read my chart.
