Dr. Robert L Gabel has the following 2 specialties
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.

Among the many serious medical problems that my late mother faced was a severe case of arthritis. She found Dr. Gabel to be very helpful, and developed an excellent rapport with his office staff. I accompanied her on many of her consultations, and he impressed me as commonsensical and caring. Particularly memorable is how he took the time to send me a lengthy handwritten note of condolence after I had informed his staff of her death. She had become a patient of his after receiving high recommendations from several friends and neighbors.
My experience in this office was horrible! I went to see Dr. Gabel at the recommendation of my father. He was diagnosed with RA years ago and liked how much time Dr. Gabel spent with patients. Dr. Gabel looked at the tests my general practitioner had done, only one of which was rheumatology based, and did a physical exam. He told me that I did not have a connective tissue issue and that he was "almost never wrong". I had extreme joint pain, fatigue and a malar rash. After the first visit it was very hard to get a hold of him or make a schedule an appointment with him. He just was not interested. Obviously, I got a second opinion that involved more thorough testing and it turns out I have lupus. It took six months to diagnose because of Dr. Gabel's obstinance. He's probably great if you've already been diagnosed or you have a very clear-cut case but with anything else, he could not care less. PLEASE DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME!!
My husband was diagnosed with SLE in 2001 by Dr. Gabel. He is friendly, extremely caring, and listens to not only his client, but to his client's family. We appreciate everything he has done for my husband and it is well worth traveling from central NJ to Red Bank to see him. The office staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Our family strongly recommends Dr. Gabel. He is the best Rheumatoid MD in NJ.
