Specialties

Dr. Ronald P Ceruti Jr 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.

Excellent dr

Although my bloodwork was negative in the beginning, Dr Ceruti began treatment based on my clinical findings. I am very grateful that, in his words, he "treats patients, not test results", as eventually my test results indicated exactly what he had begun treatment for. He always takes time with you and listens carefully to your concerns.

Excellent Doctor

I never feel rushed with Dr. Ceruti. He takes the time to take notes on what I tell him, as well as review what my other doctors at the Baton Rouge Clinic have been doing for me. He was the first (and only) person able to prescribe an Rx that actually helped with my fibromyalgia.

Unfortunate, but indicative

I was referred to Dr. Ceruti by my PCP. Unfortunately, my PCP had not forwarded the required paperwork to Dr. Ceruti's office. When I called Dr. Ceruti's office to schedule the appointment, his scheduler was extremely rude and hostileover the lack of paperwork. She actually asked why I would even try to schedule an appointment without a referral. I finally had to just hang up on the scheudler and call my PCP for a referral to a different specialist. While I can't say for certain if Dr. Ceruti's bedside manner is similar, I can say that the attitude of a doctor's staff has typically been a good indicator of that doctor's manner. If Dr. Ceruti allows his staff to treat patients this way, then I was not willing to take the chance.
