Specialties

Dr. Sarah N Hwang 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.

No.

She has completely outdated information: she does not believe Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a real disease. For my other condition, which she confirmed as a real diagnosis, she shrugged, said there was absolutely nothing she could do and there was no point in following up with her. She was literally walking away while I was trying to ask questions. It was basically, "yeah, you're sick, go rot, I don't care." The basic feeling I got was that she couldn't care less about her patients.

Never got even a chance to see the doctor. Incredibly rude, arrogant front office staff brusquely transferred us to "Blanca" who never returned my call. Doubt I would ever attempt another appointment let alone recommend her.
