Very impressed with this Physician and Nurse. He is prompt, through and involves you in the plan of care. He listens to your concerns and does not rush you... Dr. Mayer is respectful and trustworthy.

He is a kind person even though seemingly a bit curt. I've had some excellent rheumatologists in the past and his expertise is no less than theirs.
