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. Schulz was such a breath of fresh air! Kind considerate. Will spend the time with you. No rush. He really listens to you. Patient and kind. After all the doctors I have been to see. I would and do recommend him to everyone I know that needs his type of doctor. And the fact that he had an office in the suburbs is excellent! He actually does examine you,thoroughly. Even looked at pictures I took of myself for my condition.. in between visits of changes that were happening. Bottom line Dr. Schulz really does care..
My family and I love dr. Schulz. He has always been a highly attentive doctor with a great bedside manner especially during the more stressful health circumstances. He had to coordinate with my other medical specialist and did so woth great ease. He made the entire medical process a pleasant one.
Dr. Schulz is the "Best" Doctor I have,and I wouldn't change Docs if you paid me. Finally,I have a Dr. who truly cares,and "listens"to what you have to say.....I mean,how many times have you gone to a Dr.and you can tell that whatever you are saying is going in one ear and out the other...."Not with Dr.Schulz",you can tell from the 1st visit with him,that he is really there to help you",he makes me feel like I'm family. Sometimes,I may wait a little while in the office to see him,"but that's okay",because I know he's listening to that patient,and he will give me the same consideration when it's my turn,well that and "he's worth the wait"! I highly recommend this Doctor.
