Specialties

Dr. Sunita K Penmatcha 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.

Dr was ok but office staff and Labs Horrible

Ok. I saw Dr. Penmatcha a few weeks back and was told that I needed to followup in one month because the blood work would take that long to get back even though the lab work was done in office where the lab is located. Took 3 weeks of me calling to get 2 of the 3 of my labs back after me hounding the staff. Then after a month was told that my routine lab work was frozen and the lab sent it back and after 1 month of waiting still could be a few weeks or longer to get back. Seriously?? Anywhere else I would have had this back in more then 48 hours. So I asked why I even needed to do a follow up. Since the other 2 labs were out of the way and not serious and was finally told I did not have to come in for a follow up at this time and to call in a month or two if I think of it to see if my lab results came back. Really??? Who does business like this? I will not go back.
