Dr. Fabricant is a wonderful doctor. He took care of my mother for 20 years, first as her primary care physician and then as her rheumatologist for her RA. He is exceptionally intelligent and as Mother’s condition changed he modified her treatments. He kept us fully informed of all her test results and discussed them with us in detail. He spent real time with us and managed her condition well. When Mother passed away, he was the only doctor to personally answer my call and give condolences.

I was diagnosed with RA when I was 35. The doc told me I would never have another child, I would be permanently disabled in 10 years and my life expectancy was around my mid 60's all in the first 5 mins of my first visit. I found another Doctor. I am now 45, haven't had symptoms for almost 5 years, am moderately active: kayak, easy hikes, swim, play with my son and dog. I am still employed FT and am not permanently disabled. Hopefully, in 10 yrs, Fabricant has worked on his bedside manner

Dr. Fabricant changed my life. After years of pain Dr. Fabricant was able to get my rheumatoid arthritis under control. He doesn't rush you through your visits. He takes time to really listen to you and address any and all concerns. I am blessed to have found Dr. Fabricant.
