Dr. walked into the office, shook my hand then immediately asked me why I passed many doctors on my way and decided on her? Through her first question is where I should have noticed her condescending attitude towards myself and my referring provider. (Primary care). During the appointment she...Read More

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.

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...Read More
