Patient Comments (7)
Midland, MI |
Seemed to resent that I was well informed about my condition. Ignored many of my symptoms as illustrated in his documentation after my visit. Arrogant beyond belief and unyielding regarding his opinion of my stated worsening symptoms. Communication within office staff and myself was very poor at best.

I find it ironic that he's accepting new patients when he can't even take care of the ones he's had for years! He was great when he had his own practice. Now that he's with midmich, he and his staff are awful. He doesn't listen and you can't get anyone on the phone ever. He tells me I'm not in pain cuz my labs are good. Have to leave messages for refills on scrips and wait two or more weeks without meds.Will be finding a new dr Asap. Wouldn't recommend anyone going to him as he's useless
I have tried for weeks to reach someone in person and only can leave messages which aren't returned. Dr. Diola is NOT the kindest most patient man nor does he offer suggestions for other treatments in dealing with arthritis.

What a warm, caring doctor. My RA was just diagnosed so he was very good at explaining all treatments available and why he chose the one he did. His staff is just as nice!
in Big Rapids, MI |
Before I went to Dr Diola I have gone to U of M RA and I was going to another rheumatologist for 2 years and my RA just got worse. Dr Diola took a lot of time to listen and explain. He was able to help me get my RA and PMR under control! THANK YOU DR DIOLA! I finally have a doctor I believe in! His staff is always kind to me especially the Monica!
Horrible. Spent two minutes with me. Such an ego. I insisted to have more time with him to ask questions and after another 30 min wait he came in and said hurry up. No empathy. Staff took his lead. Never going back. Made me feel like a nobody.
