Patient Comments (2)

I was diagnosed with RA by Dr Sawitzke in 2001 and moved to Tucson in 2008 and this year to El Paso. I have had other doctors since Dr. SAWITZKE and none compare! He wins in all respects as the best rheumatologist ever! Wish I could still have him! In addition all the staff was fantastic there...more

Dr. Sawitzke was initially helpful and then went out of his way to prove me wrong and dismissed my symptoms despite other doctors requesting his opinion and validation of these symptoms.
