Specialties

Dr. Thomas R Nucatola Jr 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.

He tried his best, and I thank him

Dr Nukatola was one out of 30 or so doctors I had seen for my crippling health at the age of 26. I had seen two ortho surgeons, one neurosurgeon, 5 neurologists, and my primary. My symptoms were mostly orthopedic and neurological in naturure than rheumatological but dr Nickatola showed more xpertise and desire to help me than any other dr out there. In the end he didn't find out what was wrong with...but neither did the other drs I went to. The difference was that dr n fought hard, and is intelligent and caring. This is coming from a guy who hates drs and is smarter than most of them. Dr nukatola is still working on my case as I write this, he is still trying to figure me out. I've seen him for 6 months. If you need a rheumatologist, he is your man.

Dr. Nucatola takes the time to find out what your symptoms are. He talks with you rather than at you. He explains things in plain English rather than complicated medical terms. His diagnosis is accurate. He makes you feel comfortable in difficult situations. I cannot recommend him to highly. All doctors should be like him.
