Specialties

Dr. Robert J Kipnis 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.

Patient

Dr. Kipnis diagosed me with psoriatic arthritis in less than 15 minutes after I was misdiagnosed with fibromyalgia for 6 years by other doctors and rheumatologists in another state. He seems to have good clinical knowledge in this area compared to other doctors I have seen.

Don't see Dr. Kipnis if you have fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia was assigned to rheumatologists to treat many years ago because it was thought to be some type of "rheumatism." We know better now. Dr. Kipnis does not like people with fibromyalgia because he doesn't know and doesn't want to know how to treat it. It should be treated in a hoslistic setting. Look on the Internet for doctors who truly want to treat FM and know how.

Dr. Kipnis listens well.

I have been seeing Dr. Kipnis for about 10 years for Psoriatic Arthritis. He is highly knowledgeable regarding the latest information on my problems. I believe that he has balanced the risks and benefits of available treatments to maximize my quality of life.
