Specialties

Dr. Robert L Dobrow 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.

Dr. Dobrow = superman without the white coat

I love this office. And Dr. Dobrow has been such an important part of my life. My physical and psychological health issues are in the top 1% of complexity. Dr. D continues to step up for me on way too many things. Namaste, Dr. Dobrow and any patient who fully respects him

Dr. Dobrow is a first rate Doctor!

Dr. Dobrow has been my doctor for 20 years. I have always had a terrible fear of doctors, but his willingness to listen and his patience in dealing with my fears has been most helpful in providing me with medical care I otherwise would not have received. I think at the worst of times he has shown the greatest patience. His office staff? Sometimes not so good (recently, though, much improved). His nursing staff have always been professional and helpful.

Doc is great, staff is not

Dr. Dobrow is an excellent clinician and diagnostician who can be very personable and caring. But, his staff leave a lot to be desired. I finally found another MD closer to where I now live after repeated negative experiences with the "front office" workers, who were either too frazzled/overworked to pay attention or acted like they were just too important to help me.
