    Completely ignored me, total waste. Insisted on not listen tuning to a word I had to say. Other reviews are terrible and much too kind. Avoid this doc unless you are looking for massive headache and waste of your time.

    Horrible Doctor!doesn't listen& was focusing on every other medical problem i had.He was talking about my Dermatological and non existing thyroid issues for 90% of the time i was there. When in reality, his specialty is only Rhumetology.Was sent to him from my Pcp because my Pcp was convinced i had Lupus. Bloodwork showed positive a 3rd time& he said i didn't have the symptoms for it even tho he never checked me for Lupus symptoms.i have all the symptoms.disregarded my doctor's report. Long wait
