Dr. Scott J Zashin 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.

I had been to numerous specialists who treated my symptoms which I had occassional temporary relief. Dr. Zashin found my diagnosis before he started treatment. He listened to every symptom and did diagnostic testing and followed up with extensive questions with my symptoms. He talked to me and examined me thoroughly and that had not been done. He found that I had RA and fibronyalgia after ruling out other conditions. He followed up with me about what we were looking at. I had been in chronic pain with insomnia and fatigue for several years and with that came so much despair. Dr. Z was patient, attentive, caring and started my treatment. Being in pain constantly changes your life and you need someone who is experienced, understanding, who sees you as an individual and hears you vs running out of the room or treating you like all RA pts. I will be forever grateful for the care I receive from Dr. Z and his entire staff. They are professional, caring people and he is the best Dr. I have ever met or seen , as a professional in healthcare and as a patient. And his office staff is the best in Dallas because they treat you with respect, kindness and understand that patients with rheumatic illnesses, chronic pain need excellent care and sometimes patience. It is just not only what they do, but who they are. They are the gold standard of medical care and I would not be comfortable with any other Rheumatologist or staff after being a pt for 8 years. I can say that without hesitation because of the number of drs I have seen and how the offices are run. Dr Z. quite simply gave my life back to me and treats me as a partner in my care as he does each of his patients. His kindness, expertise/ knowledge, attentiveness is genuine. Other practioners always speak very highly of him as a physcian and just a kind human being and it makes me smile because my level of care goes up a little when I mention he is my Dr. Treatment is going well for me and my job is to let him know when it is not. These are lifelong conditions and that I would like to be in control of vs them controlling me and Dr. Z is making that possible for me. What else could I possibly ask for? Thank you Dr. Zashin and the entire staff.

Fibromyalgia has a very high rate of suicidal ideation and completion. I feel doctors in this area should start spending more time making sure their patients have the support they need, whether therapy, online support groups etc. It is probably also important to bring family in. Doctors need to have patients rely less on the internet and explain what symptoms the patient will explain over the course of the illness. However, Dr. zashin stays on top of the latest treatments and is eager to help.
Superior Doctor Who Cares

When first I came to him, I was nervous and scared of the ramifications of my newly discovered RA. After my first visit, I was put at ease and my fears disappeared. I feel confident in his ability, expertise and genuine care. He listened to me and my family and is completely engaged in my story, situation, and medical history. He even cares about the outside influences! However, he is not so one-minded in what my care should be that he ignores my desire to get natural help. He wants me to be just as involved in the decision-making as he is. It is a relationship that goes beyond just medicine. He is what a true doctor should be. He is worth his weight in gold!!!
