I have been seeing Dr. Worth for over ten years for Rheumatoid Arthritis. He is very through, passionate about medicine & teaching. He is very humble & honest; once he realized medication was no longer helping with reduction of inflammation and damage to bone & cartilage it was his decision to recommend surgery.

Unlike my GP, Worth knows that Prolia is the best treatment for osteoporosis. He also diagnosed my sciatica.
