Specialties

Dr. Rodney Bluestone 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.

2013 Review re my experience

Dr. Bluestone may be extremely well educated, however I became quite concerned when during my second visit he told me to stop taking the prescribed drug I was on for a condition that had been diagnosed with another Dr. in a different city, then the next visit when I complained of pain he did not remember he told me to stop taking the prescribed drug the visit before. I have since switched doctors and if I lived in the other city I would have continued with my doctor there. She was amazingly accurate and wonderful and her office was totally organized and a pleasure to visit.

I judge doctors by results. This doctor produced a wrong diagnosis, despite me telling him the disease that ran in my family that I had. He refused to prescribe a cheap drug that I was willing to pay for out of pocket (methotrexate) and that I eventually had to take when my autoimmune disease got worse. He relied on blood tests that cannot even detect T-cell mediated autoimmune disease. I judge doctors by results. He gets an F. But he did run his office on time (if that matters most to you) and have a short wait time for appointments.

THIS IS REAL HEALTH CARE

Dr. Bluestone is quality care at it's best. I had been to several doctors before seeing him who were puzzled by my symptoms, and in fact, one of them suggested sending me to Dr. Bluestone because he's known for figuring out the difficult diagnoses. Well, all I can say is that he saved my life! After meeting with Dr. Bluestone, he reviewed all of medical history and ran his own tests and finally PROPERLY diagnosed me! The plan of treatment he put me on changed my life drastically. I am a happier, healthier person than I was a decade ago. Not only is Dr. Bluestone the top Rheumatologist in Los Angeles, he is the most down to earth, honest, and caring person. His patients come first and he is devoted to making them live more fulfilled lives. He and his staff are the nicest people. My most recent visit there, they really made me feel like I was at home. They are so friendly and bend over backwards for patients.I wouldn't waste time on any other Rheumatologist. Dr. Bluestone is simply the best!
