Another bad experience with a doctor at 1500 Pleasant Valley Way in West Orange NJ. Waste of time. I am in so much pain. Nobody cares to help me. Asks questions she reads from a computer...Corrects my answers for semantics. An orthopedic dr. in this same practice referred to Rheumatologist - she said my problem is Osteo Arthritis. So which is it? Said my sleep apnea is causing my arthritis.

Ehh...
Seems somewhat knowledgeable but the follow up is horrendous... You can only work through her assistance who call with results and basically try and play telephone for what she said. Since I can see things on the portal myself I always have to ask..."what about this....why is this out of range...etc" and they never know and have to recheck or the Dr failed to see it.

I made an appointment with this doctor due to abnormal blood results. I was very nervous going to my appointment, not knowing what may be wrong. The doctor barely lifted her head to look at me and at times did not respond when I spoke. She seemed frustrated that I was referred from my primary doctor to see a RA doctor due to the abnormal results of lab work. She asked me many questions on symptoms but never clarified what she was looking for. I left with bloodwork, repeating the abnormal results and many other labs which she did not explained to me. In the days following I received my results with 4 being abnormal. Her way of communicating this is through a portal and only writing what was not wrong with me and see you in October. More importantly, there was no mention of what may be wrong. When I called upset, she could not find the time to come to the phone. She had someone in the office try to repeat her explanation in broken English. Needless to say, I would never recommend her!

After mri showed major rheumatic disease, she did not give me the diagnosis or a treatment plan but turned me over to a orthopedist who could do nothing for me. Had to find another rheumatologist to handle the rheumatic disease.

I have been a patient of Dr. Zaputowycz for 16 years after being diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis at the age of 42. Dr Zaputowycz took her time in the beginning to accurately diagnose my condition (because it is a difficult disease to discern from other similar autoimmune diseases). She listened to my self diagnosis carefully and took the necessary steps to confirm it. She is patient, listened to me, was very knowledgeable and respectful of my complaints that had nothing to do with RA.
