Dr. Bravo and his staff were OUTSTANDING. Truly a remarkable experience from the Novant Health Rheumatology & Arthritis team. I’ve struggled to get answers for my condition from other providers in different organizations. Dr. Bravo spent a great deal of time and attention on my history, physical exam, previous test results, and signs and symptoms. He was very engaged and listened carefully to my complaints. It was obvious that he really cares about getting it right and serving patients

My PCP tried to get me as I have been having a lot of issues medically with my joints. I have already been diagnosed with Lyme Disease and Fibromyalgia. This Dr/Facility denied my PCP request to see me stating that they do not deal with FIBRO patients when that was not the reason for my visit. My PCP wanted me tested for autoimmune diseases and look into other issues. My insurance does not need a referral either. If I could give no stars I would. Take your healthcare concerns elsewhere.

Would not recommend. Misdiagnosed and mismanaged a very serious autoimmune condition for 4 years.

After many years of going to another Rheumatologist and seeing my health decline I was referred to Dr. Bravo. Not only did he assist me on the road of feeling getting better, he also listened to my every concern. He responds to all email and concerns that I have. I would gladly say he is the Rheumatologist that you can trust if you want to get better.

Dr. Bravo is very knowledgable with treatment but very uncaring when it comes to someone with chronic pain. I would not recommend.

Dr. Bravo has been seeing my 83 year mother. She has multiple chronic health problems and trying to balance all her problems can be difficult. Her most recent visit was Tuesday 4-26-16. She has been feeling worse the last two weeks so I went with her. Thus was my first and hopefully last encounter with DR. Bravo. Dr. Bravo was dismissive of our concerns and barely acknowledged I was in the room. When we asked questions he cut us off. I was appalled by his lack of compassion and empathy

Dr, Bravo is the best rheumatologist in the Triad Area. After years of suffering and pain under the care of a family doctor who did not correctly diagnose my condition, I was referred to Dr. Bravo by my orthopedist. Dr. Bravo diagnosed my condition quickly and within 2 days of treatment I was feeling much better. His diagnostic skills in my experienced are unmatched. I found Dr. Bravo to be considerate, kind, forthright, and respectful. I would highly recommend Dr. Bravo to anyone.
