Alexandria, VA |
Terrible doctor. Prescribes meds and pushes you out the door. Young rheumatology patients, see someone else. He doesn't care about quality of life or longevity. Front desk staff also very rude.

Dr DeCotis was wonderful to me when I was a patient in the Northwest Florida Rehabilitation center. He always had a minute to chat. In his office the staff is very helpful and approachable. Never a long wait when I was seen at the office. Dr DeCotis even apologized for keeping me waiting when he had to take a phone call about an emergency. I highly recommend DeCotis if you have a need for a rehab or rheumatogist . I love how he and his staff always have a smile and a kind word for us.
