Dr.Muthalaly is the consummate professional--expert in her field, concerned for her patients and skilled in analysis and advice for one's health improvement. From the first meeting with her, I felt totally at ease with her cheerful demeanor; I have never experienced that level of confident assurance from any other medical person. She loves helping her patients! That's evident in my treatment. She is skilled at asking questions that aid in my improvement. I'm fortunate to have her as my doctor.

Dr Muthalaly has been more than patient with me over the years to come up with a treatment that works with my arthritis! I trust her and could not be more happy with the progress she has made with me.

Excellent MD, really listens and is so helpful!!

Dr. Asha is a wonderful, caring, and most importantly, a fantastic diagnostician! I have been ill for the past 15 years and have seen many physicians to no avail. By a coincidence, I wound up in the emergency room at Silver Cross Hospital last year When I met her, told her my health issues that no doctor could figure out, she said she was ordering numerous blood tests & would call me with the results -- Lupus. She is so thorough & has been treating me ever since. I can't praise her enough!!!

Amazing!! When I was first diagnosed with RA I was very overwhelmed. Dr M took extra time to explain my results and really helped me understand why she was giving me certain meds. She didn't just throw meds at me. It's very nice to feel cared anout!!

She prescribes way too many narcotics. After a year of being prescribed 90 Hydrocoden 10/325 even though methotrexate took away the ache, my husband was dependent on narcotics. When one wore off he would have to take another or go into withdrawal. When he approached her to try something else she asked him Why? I wouldn't give you anything that would hurt you........She then let her assistant prescribe a very strong aspirin based pain killer while he was on blood thinners.....

Dr. Muthalaly explains what she is doing; why a test is needed, what will it show. She understands how to deal with patients who do not like needles. She doesn't just jab you with the needle, she lets you know when she is going to poke you and it has always hurt less than I think it is going to. I have been seeing her for at least two years now.
