What People Say About Dr. Evangeline Scopelitis, MD
Reply
After a positive ANA she proceeded to diagnose prior to more bloodwork and kept saying this was depression/anxiety & I should exercise more. After telling me I definitely had fibromyalgia she compared my symptoms to those of her daughter and how "these people just can't get comfortable." I was specifically seeking further blood testing to rule out the positive ANA & go from there. She was cold, dismissive & seemed frustrated by my wanting to rule out blood work 1st. She never followed up with me

Dr. Scopelitis is an unprofessional person. She offered no treatment plan for my illness and anemia, and suggested my problems were depression related.
