Specialties

Dr. Walter H Eversmeyer III 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.

Mrs.

I have treated with Dr. Eversmeyer for Osteoarthritis & Psoriatic Arthritis for approximately 11 years. I was referred to him by my original treating Rheumatologist who left this area after hurricane Katrina. Dr. Eversmeyer is professional, thorough & kind & genuinely concerned for his patients. His staff is also professional, kind & courteous as well as informative. I like the fact that he is aggressive in his treatment & doesn't dance around making decisions regarding treatment or making a referral if needed. I am satisfied with having him as my physician.

First appointment

From everything I have researched on the internet, I have found that your first Rheumatologist appt. should last no less than 1 hour because he first listen to how you feel and where you are hurting. He will then look at and feel every joint and move them around to see your range of motion. My appt. lasted less than 20 minutes he looked at my hands and feet and said it's osteoarthritis, when I questioned him he said that because I didnt have an RA factor and he can look at my hands. He prescribed an anti inflammatory and told me to follow up with my GP. This is a complete joke and I will just wait and see how I feel over the next few months, visit my GP and get referred to a rhematologist that has more time to investigate my complaints/pain. Sorry I waited 2 1/2 months for nothing (how long it took to get appt.) he certainly isnt worth it!!

Best physician to ever treat me

Dr. Eversmeyer is an excellent physician and a wonderful person. His staff is A1 also!! He has strong Christian values which is quite evident in his treatment of his patients. He treats you as a PERSON who is ill and not just a case before him. He has been my rheumatologist for over 25 years. It is unthinkable for me to consider seeing anyone else
