Terrible, he can care less about the patient only about money! Doesn’t care to get to know patient, cant remember simple fact or even age of patient. Patient turnover is all that matters to him. It’s like a cattle call!

Dr Abdel- Megid is outstanding! He has treated me for Rheumatoid Arthritis for over eight years. His knowledge and diagnostic skills have kept me pain free and active. Equally impressive has been his patience and teaching ability to answer the multitude of question I have asked him over the years. I can not recommend him highly enough.

The doctor spent time with me and listened to my long list of aches and pains. He explained things to me in terms I could understand. I feel great about my recent diagnosis and that these doctors have a great treatment plan for me. It is a very busy office, and hard to get through on the phones, but now I can see why. Definitely worth the wait and definitely recommend.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Megid for over two years for RA and I’m very happy with him. He spends time with you, listens to your concerns and always wants you to feel better. I highly recommend him. He is very personable. I was going to an RA facility in a hospital and they could care less about you. Staff was very unfriendly and cold!!

Same experience as previous review: not mixing meds correctly, over prescribing prednisone, not reviewing my labs, misdiagnosing drug reactions. Don't ask questions - he'll tell you he doesn't have time to answer questions. If you even get to see this doctor (will usually send in a PA), you might get 2 or 3 minutes from him.

I had a horrible experience with this provider. I have been a registered nurse for over 25 years. This "doctor" is rude, abrupt, and is very disrespectful. If I could give him zero stars I would.

Dr Megid is a truly amazing doctor going to him is like getting treatment from brother. He has an excellent bedside manner, very personable, very knowledgeable, comforting. I love that he thinks outside the box and doesn't stop at test results to get to the root of the problem. He is very uplifting & helpful even during some very difficult painful times in my case.Without his help, I don't know where I would be today! You won't be sorry if you choose Dr. Megid He is an exceptional rheumatologist
