I went to Dr. Connelly for a second opinion regarding arthritis pain. I was taken aback by her non-compassionate attitude. She told me that she could not help me, that I had to "help myself" and that I needed to lose weight. I already knew that. She is very lacking in bedside manner and in my opinion, could have presented this in a more compassionate manner.

What a joke. Two hundred dollars later and she wouldn't talk to me, go over my symptoms, look at any clinical documentation. She blew me off in a matter of minutes with the wrong diagnosis. If she makes a prejudgment about you then that's it, you can expect to be disappointed. Rude snippy doctor and office staff.

Wonderful. By far my favorite physician in Florida. She has helped me control my RA for the past 7 years, from bouts of extreme pain prior to seeing her to her stabilizing my RA. She is so encouraging and an all around amazing physician. She is kind, thoughtful, and an expert in the field.

I have been a patient of Dr. Connelly's for 13 years. She is absolutely the most professional and thorough Doctor I have ever met and she is also the kindest. On my first visit my knee was so swollen with fluid from Rheumatoid Arthritis that I could hardly make it from the car to her door. I knew she would want to do a procedure and I was very apprehensive but she put my mind right at ease. Best of all there was no pain. 5 STARS INDEED!
