Dr. Steven J Maestrello 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.

Dr. Maestrello is a great doctor. I have chronic pain in my nerves and he is serious about my finding some sort of relief. Even though I see him at a "not so free" clinic, where he volunteers his time, he treats me as if I am a patient with insurance, (unlike the neurologist I see with Bon Secour's program, who dismisses me with "you have to learn how to manage your pain.") Because I've tried all the medical options for pain, I know I need to start getting injections and accupuncture in a serious pain management program. I feel like there's hope I will end up there if I continue seeing Dr. Maestrello. He's very empathic and actually listens. I'd recommend Dr., Maestrello in a heartbeat.
Dr. Maestrello took the time to listen to my list of symptoms and experiences and combined with my previous lab reports came to the conclusion that I was suffering from Parvovirus. My labwork came back showing an acute infection. What a relief! After 2 months of confusing and sometimes scary symptoms and web searches that had me worried about what he would find, I learned that I have an illness that I thought only dogs got. Thanks Dr. M. for taking your time and not just zipping in and out of the exam room.
I went to Dr. Maestrello due to chronic pain and fatigue. He is very thorough and listens to every need. My only complaint is his nurse. She was very short and rude when I came in for my visit. I understand they have a stressful job so I let it go, maybe just having a bad day. Then after waiting two weeks for test results I recieve a call from the doctor's office that I missed due to being at work. On the voicemail she was again rude and sounded very inconvienced and short that I did not answer. I was able to get a hold of her later in the day and she could hardly read the results to me or explain what I needed to do next. I am not one to ever complain or make a fuss but I will not be going back or dealing with this office again.
