Dr. Tanya C Lumpkins 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. Lumpkins exceeded my expectations by asking the right questions as she listened very carefully to my concerns. She took her time and was very thorough when doing my examination. She also provided very clear and understandable explanations of my problems. When I left her office, all I could say was "wow"! What a relief to have a doctor that I can really trust to have my best interest at heart.
I have recommended Dr Lumpkins to everyone who complains for a second about joint pain....She is incredibly thorough, but more than that, she EXPLAINS everything she is doing or thinking (even going so far as to pull out a book to show something to me). Be prepared for your first evaluation to take up to an hour or more. Although it sometimes results in back ups in the waiting room, She spends an inordinate amount of time with each patient, listening and doing whatever she thinks needs to be done. Because she works for herself, she does what she thinks is needed - instead of moving people along like clockwork so that they can see as many people as possible (like most medical offices do). The downside to this is that sometimes results in backups in the waiting room. But when it is your time to see her, you are glad for the attention and care. another plus is that when you call and give your name, the receptionist knows who you are (again, unlike most offices).
