Very hushed appointments. Office staff can be rude at times. Latest appointment is 3:30 which makes it really hard with work. Tried rescheduling and when I said well that does work with my work I may have to find a new doctor I guess the lady on phone said ok bye and hung up on me. I have been going there over a year at this point.

Came to find answers.. but felt rushed. Waited about an hour (I am a new patient) to only have a quick second to answer her questions of "whats going on" "tell me whats going on" BUT no room to actually speak without being spoken over by her. I felt rushed, only had 15 mins with her most of it was an exam, didn't get to go over my symptoms or anything with her. I am there seeing her for answers.. to get a diagnosis. I'd like to be heard not rushed out and guessed at what is going on.

I have juvenile rheumatoid arthritis that did not get diagnosed until I was 23 years old. She is the one who finally diagnosed me even though I probably have had it since I was 12 years old. Made a call to her on a Monday and got in to see her on that Thursday. I have never had a specialist get me in that quick. She ran a ton a tests and I went in and saw her two weeks after my appointment; I received answers right then and there. I couldn't recommend a better rheumatologist she is the best.

Awesome Doctor. Dr. Venkatram quickly assessed my pain situation and prescribed medications that quickly alleviated the pain in my joints. Just went for a follow up visit and she determined a long term medication plan to manage the pain. She and her entire staff are very professional and pleasant. Most importantly, the PAIN is gone!!

Thanks to Dr. Venkatram for putting up with my disease because it took many different medications to find what would help manage my severe condition. She never gave up on me and went above and beyond to dealing with my insurance, and making sure I get on the proper medications to help manage my severe condition. I would highly recommend her to anyone suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis!!!!!
