Care Philosophy

Patients with arthritis and other rheumatic illnesses often have symptoms for a long time before an accurate diagnosis is established and appropriate therapy instituted. No two patients are alike and only careful and patient assessment of symptoms and signs will reveal what is wrong. Patient preferences for various treatment has been considered and less aggressive treatments should be chosen as long as no harm will result in choosing complementary therapy.

Patient Comments (2)
in Aliso Viejo, CA |
Dr. Hallegua is the most intelligent and compassionate doctor I know of. He takes time to listen to what your trying to tell him. Many times it is difficult to articulate your symptoms but with his patience to listen he understands. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Hallegua has amazing diagnostic abilities. After being evaluated by a Rheumatologist who stated I did not have rheumatoid arthritis although I had deformed fingers on right hand, Dr. Hallegua confirmed I did not have R/A and said he knew someone who could fix my fingers. I had previously visited 4 certified hand surgeons who said my fingers could not be fixed. I had surgery he recommended and my hand is completely normal now. It was an undiagnosed ruptured sagittal band.
