Where do I even begin with Dr. Marilyn Solsky? There's nothing more nerve wrecking than going to a new specialist. I was almost instantly put at ease by Dr Solsky. What a Kind soul she is. With the compassion and understanding she brings to appointment, it's just a wonder how she does it. Her knowledge is unending. Her Attention to detail and caring for you as a whole not just her "piece of the puzzle" You don't find Dr's like her nowadays. I was simply blown away.

Dr. Solsky truly cares about her patients. She takes the time to figure out what is going on, discusses treatments in detail, and follows up. She is a rare find in the medical world and I would recommend her to everyone.

After years of suffering and bad treatments, Dr Solsky saved my dad’s last years of life. With patience and understanding of RA devastation, she experimented new methods and, it worked. I’m very grateful to her and I miss her here in Los Angeles. I’m getting older too and I need a good rheumatologist.

Dr. Solsky helped find answers for my daughter who has had joint pain for over 11 years. I had taken her to many doctors who were unable to give her relief. Dr. Solsky was thorough, kind, and knew exactly what to do. My daughter is now more pain free than ever. I recommend Dr. Solsky to anyone in search of answers. You may have to wait to see her, but she will spend enough quality time with you to make any wait worthwhile!

I had my first visit with Dr. Solsky today and I was very pleased. I was nervous and didn't know what to expect and she was warm and friendly and made me feel comfortable. She listened to my concerns and answered all of my questions. She didn't make me feel rushed or like she was in a hurry to wrap things up. She was able to quickly diagnose my autoimmune issues, and now we're just waiting on more testing to be done. I would highly recommend her if you're looking for a top-notch rheumatologist!
