I waited for a long time to get in to see a rheumatology doctor. I was extremely disappointed in his lack of interest in my history and ongoing issues which I spent a long time providing in the pre-appointment paperwork. He did not even look at it. He did not do a physical evaluation except to press on my forearm and to say my hands did not look swollen so not it was not inflammation. He did not go through my history or try to evaluate my current symptoms. He prescribed a medication after little to no evaluation and come to find out it has contraindications with another medication I take for migraines. I felt he was condescending and patronizing from the beginning. If you want a doctor who is going to do some work to understand your concerns don't even bother. Terrible.
