Specialties

Dr. Steen E Mortensen 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.

Dr. Mortensen should not be accepting Tricare. He refused to fill out any paperwork for me I needed because it was Military paperwork. I needed him to fill out this paperwork bc he is the specialist treating me. Not the doctors at Mcconnell. He stated " I'm not getting paid to fill out this paperwork" No bedside manner at all, all he cares about is money.

Waste of time and money

My first impression of Dr. Mortenson was good. He was amusing and seemed knowledgeable in his field. He listened and responded to questions quickly. I was optimistic that he would diagnose my illness. I had been sent to him from my doctor who was concerned that I may have an autoimmune disease. I had been sick for months with symptoms similar to RA. I was taking minocycline for acne treatment that I had stopped months ago for varying reasons and started back on it. I told both my doctor and Mr. Mortenson of my medication and they insisted that my symptoms were not like the side effects of the antibiotic, when I asked, and said I could continue use. Not true! I unfortunately believed they would know better. I continued to get WORSE and was losing hope. After doing some research I found that minocycline can induce symptoms of autoimmune diseases and make you very sick. I discontinued and quickly recovered after months of illness and tests. I called Mortenson to go over the diagnosis and discuss my research which was met with dishonesty, rudeness and excuses such as "I was asked just to test". He said it was just a bug and when I asked why have I been sick for so long he simply replied I am getting old. Get another opinion if you can afford it or just stay away!!!

Wonderful doctor!

Dr. Mortensen is an incredible doctor. He has a kind and understanding approach. With each appointment he takes all the time I need with him. He is straight forward about my disease, but also listens and explains when I have questions. He is the reason I can walk today, am no longer in pain and my disease is in remission.
