Specialties

Dr. Robert P Sundel has the following 4 specialties

  • Pediatric Rheumatology
  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

  • 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.

A most unpleasant experience.

This guy didn't listen to the patient (an 11 year old boy in chronic pain for 7 years) nor his mother and essentially dismissed all the input he got from either of us. He told us he should go do some exercises and then he should be 'fine'. Another doctor after him, discovered he had TWO torn meniscuses (Dr Sundell checked and said he was 'structurally sound') and chronic Lyme (which I had suggested but he laughed at me). He treated a complex situation (7 years of chronic pain) with a blunt instrument (himself). No interest in ever seeing him again. (and I believe at the time he was head of the Dept)

No Good

The man's arrogance got in the way of his correctly diagnosing my son's illness. He interviewed my son and me very insensitively. He consistently dismissed odd lab findings as irrelevant and they turned out to be relevant. He gave us a wrong diagnosis and prescribed medicine and treatment that was not appropriate. On top of that, the front office was a bureaucratic mess.

Perfect

Excellent Doctor. I was in the Hospital for six months and he was there for everything. Took three months to find out what was wrong and he worked day and night to find me an answer. He even brought me a birthday gift for my thirteenth birthday while I was in the hospital.
