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 guess it is just the way the medical field in general is but I felt like I was pulling teeth to find the cause of my problem. Every doctor I see just wants to "do a test" asap. Well I would just once have someone sit down with me and explain just what I could have as a problem, the different forms of treatment and tests. Maybe that is impractical in today's world but I have to do most of my learning on the internet. This is the case with every single doctor I see. The net result is I tend to not play "test a rama" and have none done. Try talking about the possibilities and finding a common starting point first. I was in the hospital recently and to this day no one will tell me exactly what caused my condition. maybe they did not know, but not even an opinion was offered.
Dr. Harris was treating me at Cape Coral Hospital. He was Courteous and knowledgeable. He mad a special visit to my room to outline and discuss the surgery I needed. He arranged for my transfer to Florida Tampa Hospital for the surgical specialist to continue with my care. I greatly appreciate his time and care. Thank you
