I was diagnosed with RA early in the year after experiencing excruciating pain through out my body. I went to Dr Arias to get a second opinion early march and felt comfortable with him at that point and decided to stay with him. As my doctor patient relationship was progressing my condition was not stable and being new to this condition I felt I needed a lot of questions answered. This seemed to bother him. He does not get back to you in a proper time frame when you need him the most.
