Dr. Sheth is a very kind, thoughtful physician. He took the time to listen to all of my concerns, ordered blood work, and provided thorough explanations of my diagnosis. He also offered ongoing management and consultations. Very highly recommend him for autoimmune or arthritis issues!!

Dr. Ramos came close to killing me by overprescribing pain medication then abandoning me when I chose to stop taking it, resulting in a months long detox that severely effected my health. I would not recommend anyone see him for pain management as he isn't a specialist in that field.

Dr Gomez should really consider a different profession. He has zero people skills and tries way too hard to be “cool or funny” by constantly swearing and being extremely conceited in himself. I thought he just came off as rude but no, he really just is rude.
