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.

Not much to say, very poor exam, did not do much. Sent a script to my pharmacy that made me sick, when I called the office to speak to him about the drug problem he never called back. Tried again the next day and same thing. He is out! Not sure who writes the reviews here but they must be his staff. Not a good doctor, look elsewhere. Good luck.
I have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Viennas and the staff. I have been a long time patient and they have always treated me with the care that a patient should be given. The staff is wonderful. Anytime I have a problem or need assistance they are more then willing to assist me with my needs. Dr. Viennas is an excellent physcian. He has been there with me in caring for my needs and the problems that I am having and has been able to diagnose and maintain control of my problems. The location they are at is wonderful. If you are looking for a physcian in Astoria, Dr. Viennas(Hygeia Medical Grp.) comes highly recommended.
I have been a patient for some years now and had to let everyone know what a great doctor Dr. Viennas is. His staff is professional, caring, and always goes above and beyond for their patients. Unfotunately sometimes there are patients that walk into the office and behave poorly to the staff...something I have witnessed on more than one occassion. Yes you may have to wait to see the doctor but it is well worth it, when it is your turn you are never rushed and all your questions are answered. Wish more offices were like this.
I'm having terrible experiences with this rheumatologist and well as with his support staff. They are not willing to help the patients, or do their jobs. They just want to get by and do as little as possible. Support staff, including Dr. Viennas, get very upset, scream and kick boxes whenever they are asked to fill out any type of forms, such as insurances or referrals. Support staff make it very difficult for patients to be helped from outside source when the needed information and documentation falls on their lap. WORSE UNPROFESSIONAL DOCTOR, WORSE UNPROFESSIONAL STAFF, WORSE EXPERIENCE!!
