I would not be where i am today had i not found Dr. Alappatt. I tell everyone how much i do appreciate this doctor, the years of pain i went through with my arthritis before i found him and the treatments he put me through helped me so much and still does. I would recommend him to everyone who has any type of arthritis, he is # 1. He also keeps a great staff to work right alone with him.

Very, very impressed with Dr. Alappatt and his staff. My initial examination was very thorough - every joint inspected, every symptom listened to. Detailed questions posed. And very personable. Me and my psoriatic arthritis are a work in progress (and there has been excellent progress) but thus far I have top-of-the-line confidence in this office and their judgement. I can highly recommend them.

I am very pleased with Dr. Alappatt ! I changed from a Dr. in Cinc . I had went to for 10 yrs. He was recommended to me by my brother and neice. I am glad I made the change !!

He is extremely intelligent and fact based at first. I have been seeing him for 4 years. At first I was frustrated by this but appreciate how up to date he is with treatments. He is quick to respond to flair ups of my psoriatic arthritis. We have evolved into a team and he has become more personable . I have recommended him to friends. I went to Cleveland Clinic for a second opinion but opted to stay with Dr. Alapatt. I am an RN so I put in a lot of time checking into my treatment, and feel I am

I first saw his RN: thorough, compassionate, & took me seriously. I heard (very thin walls!) through the door that he told Dr. Alapatt he thought I might have Sjogren's Syndrome, but Alappatt brushed him off. He looked at my joints for a second, then saw I had a pit under one fingernail & decided I probably just have psoriatic arthritis, despite my telling him I don't have psoriasis. He didn't even GLANCE at the symptom list or medical history I took hours to prepare. Made me feel terrible.
in Dayton, Ohio |
Unkind at best. I'd been treating with him for a couple yrs, came in with my fiancé and he talked to him the entire time... he didn't know our relationship at all. They had an office purge, and every kind person they had left. Had a bone scan, the machine weighs you as well evidently, and the tech reversed numbers making it off by 45 lbs. Geeze....
