Specialties

Dr. Sandra Sessoms 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.

I trust his woman with my life.

Dr. Sessoms has been my doctor for nearly thirty years for systemic lupus. Many specialties are about the science (ophthalmology), rheumatology is about the art of medicine. Dr. Sessoms excels at the art of medicine. As a physician myself, I have seen her work with other patients, and found it to be excellent. In the past, her appointments were difficult. But now, as a cash on the barrel head practice, they are easy. It's only your life -- shell out if you can. If you are without funds, she sees patients at the San Jose Clinic.
