Dr. Scott P Stein has the following 2 specialties
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.

Dr Stein takes a very detailed medical history, actually listens and does not treat you like you are crazy and just need a therapist. He takes his time to listen to you and give feedback. He does his absolute best to find the most appropriate treatment for you and is not offended by questions or suggestions. He does not rush to a rash decision. My only wish is that I had found him sooner. I have not one bad thing to say about this doctor.
Originally I went to see Dr. Stein for what I thought was Fibromyalgia. I had severe muscle pains that may have been attributed to statin meds. Dr. Stein put it all together, noticed I needed an x ray for my left hip, and determined I have moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis in my left hip. He gave me excellent medication for my condition, recommended an improved diet, and a swimming exercise program .He said I was fortunate to be thin, and said to "stay that way" in order to prevent putting stress on that hip. Had I not gone to see Dr. Stein, I'd be in pain, and I never would have known about my hip problem..which he is successfully treating! He's a pleasure to talk with..his staff is courteous and very helpful..especially when I call with a question or two. I'm very appreciative to Dr. Stein for improving the quality of my life.
