Rheumatologist Joins Medical Staff

Dale Medical Center is excited to have Dr. In Young Soh join the Medical Staff. Dr. Soh is a Board Certified Rheumatologist. A rheumatologist is an internist that received additional training in the diagnosis (detection) and treatment of arthritis and other musculoskeletal diseases. Also called "rheumatic" diseases, these diseases affect the joints, muscles and bones.

Rheumatologists must fisrt complete four years of medical school and three years of residency training in internal medicaine. After taking a national exam to become board certified, rheumatologists devote two or three years in specialized training in an accredited rheumatology fellowship program. Upon completion of their fellowship they qualify for board certification in rheumatology by the American Board of Internal Medicine.

Dr. Soh treats patients with arthritis, certain autoimmune diseases, (when the body comes under attack by its own immune system), musculoskeletal pain and osteoporosis. There are more than 100 types of these rheumatic conditions. A few of them are rheumatioid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout, lupus, ankylosing spondylitis, osteoporosis, fibromydiyia, and tendinitis. Some of the rhumatic diseases are very serious and can be hard to diagnose and treat.

Dr. Soh has been practicing Rheumatology at Dothan Medical Associates, P.C. since August 2003. He received his medical degree from Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea. He completed his fellowship training at the University of Tennessee in Memphis, TN and at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan. He has also practiced at John Dingell Veteran Affairs Medical Center in Detroit, Michigan where he was the attending physician of rheumatology. Dr. Soh is married to Ami and they have two children, Peter and Cara.
