Dr. Samir R Yahia 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.

Good Doc

I have had Rheumatoid Arthritis for 49 years, diagnosed as a child. I've seen my share of Rheumatologists over the years. This guy knows his stuff! He's well-versed in treatments, medications, and most importantly complications of the disease. His internist background coupled with rheumatology is a big plus. Add to that he's kind, compassionate, and has a sense of humor. His goal is always less pain and quality of life. My only concern is that he's getting older and who knows when he'll retire.

Pretends to Know

Seemed decent at first, but that quickly changed the longer I spent with him. He refused to listen whenever I tried correcting him. He blamed everything on anxiety and told me to "stop letting it get to me". He told me to stop taking medications prescribed for other things by my primary doctor because it has "side effects". He answered a personal call on his cellphone in the middle of my appointment! I wouldn't recommend him to my worst enemy.

Bad News Doctor

This doctor first came off as compassionate..prescribed pain meds to greatly help with my fibro, then on a follow up visit he wrote out scripts and when I submitted them to Walgreens, they questioned him on what he prescribed... and he cancelled the script!!! Who does that? He left me in a total couple weeks of severe pain...he also had a racist remark to say to me regarding my husband while in his office
