Have been seeing Dr. Mahmood for a few months for Polymyalgia and she has been so patient listening to all my symptoms and working with me to relieve pain. Also am so impressed with her assistant who returns calls and is prompt.

Doctor Mahmood was able to pinpoint my foot and joint pain as Psoriatic arthritis. It was a relief to find the cause of the pain and skin eruptions and the medication she prescribed has worked amazingly well. She and her nurse Vi are caring, very knowledgeable and pleasant and a joy to visit.
