Patient Comments (1)
Easton, PA |
I think I found him. I was on the BC website doing a search for Rheumatologists and his name came up under Patient First in Easton. For those of you who don't know what Patient First is, it's a walk in clinic. I don't know any other Rheumatologists by that name. I called them and they said that he is not a regular doctor there but does come in now and again. I would love to begin to see him again but need someone who practices full time. Maybe if he gets a lot of calls from people wanting him.
