Drs Desio and Fellows are both great on all spheres. The manager of the office, cheryl, is rude, defensive, recalcitrant, obtuse, obese, Disrespectful; Listening skills suck. Was argumentative over data what she was plain wrong about. Medical providers: Great, The Office manager: Awful

Everything said about his office staff in these reviews is true. They are a disgrace to the medical community. Oh and he is a sorry excuse for a Dr. Terrible folow through and does not listen.

Review for Dr. Weinstock

Primary sent me to this group. I got her. Will never go back. Did not address reason primary sent me for. I am very active, which she didn't ask about before she insisted that I use a cane. She frustrated me to the point that a rheumatologist will never be in my vocabulary again.

Dr Kung was awesome! He put me at ease and made me comfortable during steroid injection of my ankle. He explained everything he did and the procedure lasted about 10 minutes. He had a friendly, approachable demeanor and didn’t rush. I wouldn’t hesitate to return to him.

Review for Dr. Kung

Read all of the reviews on this "doctor" and you'll see the pattern. Concern for her patient's well being appears to be the last thing on her mind. Dont waste your time. Get actual medical attention elsewhere.

Dr. Glazier lacks empathy, kindness of heart and tact. Cruelty and hurtful words seem to be his hallmarks. Possibly he's burned out. Possibly... I got away from him and am now fully recovered and fine. Even his doctor's notes were mean-spirited.

Dr. Vemuri has been helping me successfully for 3 years now. As with any medications surrounding mental disorders, there is a fair amount of trial and error. But the decisions on what to try were all made methodically and adjusted when necessary. She seems knowledgeable and professional.
