Specialties

Dr. Vivian Hobayan 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.

Two Stars

I also have been seeing the Dr. for going on five years. In this time she has helped me in lowering the amount of steroids I was on by working other meds around. The rheumatoid continues to worsen even after 4 major/expensive drugs. Her idea is to try yet another drug! I tell her things just continue to get worse and she smiles and shakes her head and says "Boy , I just can't figure this out".

Not a professional

I have been going to the Dr. for 4 years and in the beginning she did listen to my concerns, but always seems to push the drugs on me. Now she is not even in the room with me for 2 min. or less and when I waited for up to 2 hours. I also have to talk to her back in the hallway to get answers. She told me I had lupus and I do not have it, just the the lupus marker. I do not recommend this dr.
