Dr. Tammi L Shlotzhauer 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.

I've had multiple issues requiring the services of multiple doctors, and she is the one who is always on top of things. She really listens, budgets time to address all concerns without rushing, never late, explains treatment options and their pros and cons, follows up to make sure everything is going right. She wants a copy of all your blood tests ordered by other doctors, which is a good thing, since I once needed a transfusion and the doctor who ordered the test never notified me. She relates to me as a person, not just a patient.
She has a great personality, very warm. Makes you feel comfortable from your very first visit. Answers your questions with patience, never rushes you. Writes instructions down for you so you don't forget. I have great respect and confidence in Dr. Tammi. She is not like alot of other doctors that make you feel you are just another folder on the pile.
Although I had to wait 3 months for an appt, it was well worth the wait. After 10 minutes with the doctor, she read the x-rays taken by another location, and I came back and said," I know what is wrong!" Dr.Tammi was so positive with me and also spoke positively about the Dr. who make the referral. She is so caring and concerned about her patient. Follow up calls and being so kind and caring about her patient is a rariety today when insurance depends fast visits and patients every so many minutes.I would highly recommend another to see this doctor. We need more Dr. Tammy's!
