Dr. Shawn G Macalester 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.

Excellent Doctor

Visited Dr. MacAlester for the first time a couple weeks ago. Had what I thought was arthritis in my hands. However, my primary care and other doctors would never diagnose, instead they'd blow my concerns off. Dr. MacAlester was very personable, quite knowledgeable, extremely helpful and has good "bedside manners". He's a very kind personable doctor and will be as detailed or explain things until you understand. He put my mind at ease about the arthritis and helped me with things to do in order to stay any future problems. He's also very open to naturopathic medicine, which for me is a big plus. I highly recommend Dr. MacAlester.

I saw Dr Macalester for a consult concerning the source of my chronic fatigue syndrome. He was very thorough as well as being kind, understanding, asking inciteful questions and listening intently to my sometimes long drawn out explanations. I would recommend this doctor to everyone.
