Dr. Gauda Respicio has many years of experience, but I found her to be very noncommittal in her discussions of my issue(s) and treatment. For me, my experience was difficult and not useful.

Last two visits waited over an hour. Last visit was 1st thing in morning & still had an hour wait. Ignored my report of constant pain, basically did not listen to me at all. After I said what I'd tried, she spent rest of appointment telling me I should do what I had just said had been tried to no avail (as if I hadn't done anything at all). Left feeling more depressed than ever and with no relief for my pain. This guy needs bedside manner 101, starting with remedial listening skills.

Dr. Respicio is very thorough, knowledgeable, personable, articulate, listens well, and thoroughly answers all my questions. I've been seeing her for about a year. She has explained more to me about my autoimmune disease than any other rheumatologist I have seen.

I love Dr. Respicio because she listens to me. She never forced or made me feel uncomfortable when I chose not to continue a recommended therapy. What she recommended worked however the side effects of some meds were more than I could tolerate. She is one of the most personable medical professionals I have encountered.

I brought my girlfriend to Dr. Respicio because she had extremely swollen knuckles. She was also suffering from itchy skin and rashes all over her body. We weren't sure what was going on. We'd seen her primary care Dr. for routine blood work, 2 Dermatologists, An Allergist, A Endocrinologist and finally Dr. Respicio (A Rhuemotologist). Dr. Respicio diagnosed "eczema" and explained the swollen joints as a side effect. She treated her with the proper meds, creams, etc and we're 100% better!! A+++

After most of my initial blood work came back inconclusive, Dr. Respicio's bedside manner plummeted. She became glib, impatient, and condescending upon all my followup visits. She slapped on a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia and recommended Cymbalta and physical therapy -- but over a year later my symptoms still had not improved. After seeing two other specialists, I was diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. She completely missed it due to preconceived notions, rushing, and careless mistakes.
