I had people that search for specialist in a particular field that could help me. She was supposed to be one of them. Yet with no reason denied to see me as a patient most likely because of my fibromyalgia. They seem quick to take on easy patients to make quick money but deny those that could actually use the help. Typical

Very easy to make appointment and you are seen as soon as you arrive. Staff is very cordial and helpful. Doctor Bussey-Smith truly cares about her patients. She listens, studies, consults and explains things with detail and patience. I have seen Rheumatologists for years, but she is a true professional and the best I've found. If you want the best care, I recommend Dr. Bussey-Smith.
