Caring Doctor
I have never been to a doctor like Dr. Cuevas. She listens and genuinely cares for her patients. I was in the middle of a horrible psoriatic arthritis flare up. She spent time with me on the phone on her day off to make sure I was okay. How many other doctors would do that?.…none! We created a plan to help me return to better health and she asked me to check in with her her a few days later to make sure the plan was working. She even gave me advise how to help my family understand my limitations. I am very thankful and blessed to have her as my doctor.

I think she cares about her patients. She did a great job trying to figure out what was wrong with me and really tried to help me. Very friendly and spends a lot of time asking questions.

After several visits, blood tests, and money out of pocket I got no closer to a solution. Then, I was cut off as a patient by certified mail for being "non compliant" after losing my business, my health insurance, my house and most of my personal belongings due to Covid. I could not afford the extra 2300$ in blood work or the 5000$ for another scan because we were desperately trying to pay rent and buy food until I found a new job. I could not afford to pay her, she doesn't take insurance and I was stuck on Prednisone as a maintenance drug until I could afford to get the tests she required. Out of the blue, I get a certified letter saying she would no longer see me as a patient. Personally, I don't think she knew how to help, she wasn't making money off of me but obviously couldn't say either of those things to me. So she said I was "non compliant" to her recommendations and told me to find someone new. Now I have to start all over, find a new doctor and go through all the tests again.

Dr. Cuevas is absolutely awesome. After 3 months with terrible pain and no rheumatologist in the area willing to see me (but having no problem stringing me along for weeks on end), Dr. Cuevas helped me within hours of receiving the referral from my GP. She took the time to walk me through the salient points in my bloodwork-no doctor has ever gotten into that sort of detail with me before. I've never been sick in my life and to be diagnosed with Lupus at 59 has been fairly traumatic. Dr. Cuevas explains things completely and offers great general guidance on adjusting to my new reality. She is by far the best dr I've ever had, and I have been blessed with a couple of really good ones over the years.

First impression upon meeting Dr Cuevas was like sitting and talking to a friend. Not at all what I was prepared for. Having some very crazy health issues that are very serious. In a year I've seen many many drs. Noone can figure it out and they always dismiss me. She gave me time to explain, talk , express my fears and said OK I have a plan!! A plan umm let's do it! Even though I don't have answers yet. The sher notion that she cares and is diligent about exploring every Avenue is fantastic. She has a heart and love for her patients that is rare these days. And the knowledge to share with you and a plan for you. That speaks volumes!
