I was very pleased with Dr. Shrestha. She was most pleasant and professional, extremely thorough and answered all my questions. She explained the course she planned to take and what I could expect. I did not feel rushed at all.

An elder is referred to you and you dismiss them and speak to them like they're garbage. Just because you think you're better than everyone else does not mean you are.

Dr. Shrestha's office environment is unfriendly. Her nurse is rude and shows genuine dislike for me. The doctor clearly shows no interest in treating me and even said that there are 50 people waiting in line to take my place. I need to find another Rheumatologist.
