She doesn't spend an appropriate amount of time with me. Very rarely says anything encouraging. If I would exercise and lose weight I'd feel better. I've had RA and OA for over 30 years. I've lost 40 lbs. yet all she can say is I need to lose weight. Very discouraging. If I've lost a few pounds between appointments it goes unnoticed. Time to look for a new rheumatologist.
She has helped me with my RA and was thorough and explained everything to me to my satisfaction. She was glad to see my condition has improved. She doesn't make you wait a long time and seems to know what she is doing quite well.
No complaints so far. She is helping me with my RA.
Very caring, compassionate, and thorough. I had total confidence in him.
I've only been going to her for less than a year but I find her very friendly and knowledgable. I've RA for 30 years and had to find a new rheumatologist when I moved. She asked a lot of questions and wanted to start at this point in my disease and not go backward. I find her easy to talk to and feel she listens to me. Although I do get tired of her saying I need to lose weight. I know that. It's not going to come off overnight.
She has a very bad bed side manner.. then trying to move both my arms up above my head she asks me why am I crying.. Seriously? I have been in pain for 3 or 4 months straight.. waiting to get a Dr appointment...She tells me I am fine...Nothing is wrong with me. Tell my son that.. when he tries to ply with me or tries to hug me, and I scream in pain because he moved my arm. He looks like he did something wrong.. and I keep telling him that he didn't. That mommy hurts really bad in her arms
