Review of Dr. Kalish

-

Dr. Kalish has never diagnosed me or provided the treatment that I desperately needed. He has much more interest in his students which he should do full time rather then being a part time treating doctor. I wanted to be switched to another rheumotologist and Dr. Kalish prevented that though he was doing nothing for me. I have been forced to go elsewhere and was diagnosed with two serious illnesses which Dr. Kalish failed to do due because he did not pay attention to what needed to be done.

Review of Dr. Yinh

- in , MA |

Absolutely wonderful Doctor. From my first appointment, Dr. Yinh was able to identify with my Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia. She is compassionate, patient and listens to what you are trying to express about your level of pain. I am so grateful to have Dr. Yinh as my Doctor. She has already helped me to improve the quality of my daily living.

Review of Dr. Vlad

- in Raynham, MA |

I have only been a patient of Dr. Vlad for a few months, but I wish I had found him years ago. My previous Rheumatologist of over 15 years basically did nothing except remind me that I have osteoarthritis, collect my copay and send me on my way. From the 1st 5 minutes I knew Dr. Vlad was not like that. He looks you in the eyes, listens, and asks questions about what has/hasn’t helped in the past. Then he includes you in deciding what to try next. He is compassionate and very easy to talk with.

Review of Dr. Vlad

-

I have been to a lot of specialist for all of the symptoms of Sarcoidosis. My liver doctor sent me to Dr. Vlad to treat me and do my lab work and exams that were due. When I got to Dr. Vlad's office, I was seen by the medical residents who took my history. When Dr. Vlad came to see me he said he would not do any testing and that I could just follow up in 3 months. He said that he could just send me to a knee replacement and that those are the types of things they do in this office.

Review of Dr. Kalish

- in Newtonville, MA |

Dr. Kalish failed to evaluate or recognize autonomic dysfunction related to Lyme disease. Essentially walked out of the office without insights or recommendations to better understand my multiple-systemic failures. It is 2 years later and I am in deep trouble based on PET scans, nerve biopsies and orthostatic blood pressure testing. To descibe himself as Lyme expert is just not my experience.

Review of Dr. Yinh

-New York, NY |

Dr Yinh has terrific listening skills. She is helping my 84 year old mother deal with pain & stress from being a caretaker of my 88 year old Dad. She is an excellent doctor for a senior citizen but I would definitely go to her myself! She really cares & it shows. Well done Dr Yinh!

Review of Dr. Kalish

Dr. Kalish is amazing! He listens to my issues and discusses all the treatment options available. If I'm not happy with a particular method of treatment he is very receptive to other options. I find him and his staff very easy to communicate with.

Review of Dr. Kalish

-Boston, MA |

Dr. Kalish was phenomenal. He spent so much time going over my symptoms and was very sympathetic about the issues that I had been having. The world needs more doctors like him!

Review of Dr. Vlad

- in Hanson, MA |

Very thorough, easy to understand, caring. I feel as though he will see me through and not throw his hands up and send me off to another specialist because I am not an easy case.

Review of Dr. Harvey

-Newton, MA |

I was so disappointed with my visit. I never leave reviews, but it took 4 phone calls and over two weeks to get lab results (which were ready within 3 days of my blood work). He didn't even call me with the results- his assistant did. Aside from that, he only spent about 5 minutes with me at my visit.
