Dr. Sheeja Francis 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.

Ordinarily I wouldnât write a review but after reading the reviews here on Dr. Francis I felt compelled to write a review. And the reason is because some of these reviews sound like the same thing that happened to me. First she was very slow to get to me. Now I am an older female who suffers with R.A. and it is difficult for me to sit in those hard chairs for a long time. Then when she came in the room she seemed agitated. But then when we began to talk and I listened to her tell me there was nothing wrong with me. I told her there must be because of the way I feel. Then she told me I could find another doctor just like she told these other people. It seems if Dr. Francis canât find out what is wrong with you she tells you to see another doctor. Sound familiar. This is why I wrote this review because some of these reviews sounded just like my meeting with Dr. Francis. After she told me that I could find another Dr I asked her why I would have to do that. She wouldnât give me an answer. Then she abruptly ended the meeting and left the room. The nurse came back in and I asked her if the Dr was coming back in. The nurse looked at me like I was nuts and told me the Dr was finished. I was shocked. Anyway I would tell everyone not to use this doctor because she is rude, impolite, especially to women and apparently not very knowledgeable as a doctor. Donât go to her go to another doctor like I am going to do taking her advice to do exactly that. I give her a very low rating if any at all.
I was referred to Dr. Francis by another physician because I was having a lot of joint pain. I have also been sick for a lot of years and suffer from joint pain when I got sick a few some time ago. So when I met with Dr. Francis after her office made me wait an hour and Â½ she was very rude and curt to begin with. Very bad bedside manner. She went on to tell me there was nothing wrong with me because the blood results came back with no problems. She then told me very sarcastically I could find another doctor if I wanted too. Apparently she has a habit of saying this to patients. As I see someone else complained about this of her. That is if you donât like what she has to say she tells you can find another doctor. She is by far one if the worst doctors I have ever had the displeasure of dealing with. She is not as good a doctor that she thinks she is. And when she canât find out what is wrong with you she will blame it on other doctors and the treatment they are giving you, or the blood doesnât say anything to guide her. The worst doctor I ever went to. Do not go to her at all. Find another doctor for R.A.
