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+++

Terrific doctor! One of the best I've seen.

I feel like I have a caring doctor who is willing to help me explore options and respects my preferences regarding medication and shots. Highly recommend.
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.
Excellent bedside manner! Easy to talk to and always looking for ways to help her patients. I'm very happy she's my doctor.
