Dr. Stephen A Bookbinder 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.

not a smile or expression

Seems to be very knowledgeable about blood results but unable to smile, shake your hand or say goodbye. Was very uncomfortable because he talked to the wall and not me. I hope he can dx me but after I doubt I'll return.

waste of time

This Doctor was a total waste of time. He has trouble remembering who hispatients are and what he diagnosed them with just a few months prior. Contradicts himself and needs to learn how to leave his personal opinions and beliefs at the front door! Very disappointed with this doctor.
