Specialties

Dr. Steven A Portney 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.

Improper care of my Daughter.

Dr. misdiagnosed my daughter condition for over a year. When she tried to explain the joint pains she was having and asked if she should have x-rays, he dismissed her fears with a laugh and said she probably had fibromyalgia. Finally after being rushed to the hospital ER in severe pain, she had to have immediate surgeries for multiple myeolomas and upper cervical and hip replacement due to stage 4 cancer. Her other physicians at the hospital told me they were taking charge of her case and not to go to him anymore. After, she had been hospitalized for two days he finally went to see her and asked her WHAT HAPPENED?
