Dr. Anandarajah isn’t very knowledgeable compared to other providers in the area. He’s probably sufficient enough for those with mild and/or uncomplicated RA or similar issues who want to chit chat, but if you want someone who treats you based on your unique set of symptoms (and not just your condition) to receive optimal care, I would strongly urge you to see someone else. I’m not sure where he got his MD, but it was highly concerning how few questions he was able to answer. I don’t know if it’s due to the quality of his training or just a lack of knowledge in general, but I‘ve never written a negative review for a physician (because I know we all have our bad days), but I felt obligated to warn others. You deserve better care than this man is able to provide!

Had my first appt. with Dr. A. He is wonderful. He apologized for being 5 minutes late, and spent over 30 minutes with me. After entering some early info. on the computer, he turned and we talked face to face. Refreshing! Wonderful sense of humor, and was very engaged and concerned about my condition. sed a cautious but very thorough approach.. Very impressed

He came in 50 minutes late to the appointment. I felt as if none of my questioned received thorough answers. I am an RN. The answers he was giving me did not match with the research I had done on my condition. In conclusion, it was as if he had never seen another patient with my condition. When he felt the visit needed to end, I said, "but I have more questions", and he said, "I have to go, I am going to be late!" I advised him that he was 50 min. late to begin with. He has been fired.

I like Dr. Anandarajah very much. He is very patient, listens well and answers all questions. He is very gentle when examining the patient. I have received cortisone shots from him (which can be painful) and I barely even feel the needle. I would definitely recommend him to others.
