Since I have been being treated by Dr B my arthritis has become manageable and at times it's like I do not have this horrible disease. Thank you so much to Dr B and his wonderful staff (and you too Lori)

I have been using Dr. Burhan for years and find him very interested,caring and helpful I have no problems getting an unplanned appointment. If my appointment is at 3 PM and I walk in at 8 AM I am seen right away without much of a wait. I have talked to other Doctors and they always ask me if he is my Rheumatologist. That tells me that he is respected by other Doctors. I highly recommend him.

Dr B is fantastic! After suffering for years with psoriatic arthritis, my mother came across Dr Chinikhanwala. For almost four years now, every week when I take my mother for her shots, he asks how she's doing, they chit-chat and he seems genuinely concerned. He has helped my mother in more ways than I can count. I can't rave about him enough, truly. He's got a big heart and listens to every problem my mother brings up. I would suggest him to anyone!

Other patient is correct he does think he's God. He's NOT. After 3 months wait for appointment, spends seconds with you. Due diligence. Just Ask around, even other Doctor's opinions of him.

I consider myself lucky to have found Dr. Burhan (as he is normally referred to) because he was very knowledgeable, helped me understand my afflictions (both rheumatoid and osteoarthritis) and I thought he was very personable. When I was telling a friend about my experiences, she said she has him also as her physician and really felt pleased also. I had 3 or 4 appointments over 2 years ago but had a cortisone shot January 2014 and it is just wearing off now so I will be going back soon.
