Care Philosophy

I believe that treatment of long term rheumatic conditions requires multiple approaches. Educating individuals about their condition and encouraging a healthy lifestyle with appropriate exercise is the foundation of care, and the judicious use of medical therapy can also be quite helpful after risks and benefits are carefully balanced.Read more

Correctly identified the source of my arm pain as being due to arthritis in the spine.
in Zachary, LA |
Dr. Nesheiwat was very thorough in his examination, asking for information relevant to evaluating my concerns so that together we could arrive at a correct diagnosis of my symptoms. I noticed that some questions were asked more than once and for me this was beneficial in that I would be giving the same answer to a question asked a different way. His manner is very friendly, yet professional which made me feel comfortable. I would recommend him should I know of someone needing his expertise
Baton Rouge, LA |
I love Dr. Nesheiwat. He is the 1st MD that has come up with a treatment plan that has actually helped in decreasing both the number & severity of my fibromyalgia & arthritis flare ups. I cannot say the same about his nurse Dana. She is rude, condescending, unwilling to work with you (the pharmacy I usually use and I both flooded in the great flood and she refused to call in rx out of town) & does not want to be bothered. Will continue to see him, but absolutely dread having to deal with her

OMG! THis IS one of the BEST doctors I have ever seen. He really tries to figure out health problems And he really CARES. Just being in his presence makes me feel better- he's positive,compassionate, and very thorough.
Plaquemine, LA |
I have to say I'm so saddened how this MD is not caring, compassionate, or patient with you. His nurse Dana is the rudest person, I have never been yelled at by anyone. I'm beyond shocked at how he runs his practice. I can't get anyone to schedule me an appointment or even return my calls, I have been having major RA flares and I'm newly diagnosed and this has been very hard for me and this MD has not helped me with the understanding of this disease and Dana is no good!

I seen dr.nesheiwat when he first started medicine. He listened to every thing that I was concerned with and he didn't know the answer right off hand but he didn't stop trying to figure it out and help me get better . I loved him a great personality.
