I could have written this exact review from another patient. I had the exact same experience. Going to see someone else. "She was very rude ! She acted as if I was making up everything I was telling her. And she kept saying over & over... you know if you really do have RA you will have to go thru Chemo. Uh NO. Needless to say - I am NOT going back."

Not very friendly, doesn't smile much. Not rude, just a bit impersonal. If you have specific questions, make sure you ask them outright. She'll go 10 miles in a circle giving you information, rather than just straight shot from Point A to Point B. My friend who was with me asked, "Can she get on medication?" and Pooja answered, "If she wants to." I'm the patient, why am I suggesting meds to you? ARNP Ginny is nice. They need to work on returning calls & better receptionists.

I have suffered with Lupus and fibromyalgia for many years. Through this experience I have seen many rheumatologists in Tallahassee and surrounding areas. I was very impressed with Dr. Patel my first visit and I continue to pleased after several years there. We have gone for many years in Tallahassee with not much of a choice in rheumatology so I am thrilled to have found her.

She's OK, average. Staff is terrible. NP can't read a chart, mistakes old for new results, etc.

I was told that I would be seeing Doctor Patel every other visit but I have not seen her since the initial visit. The P.A. That I have seen, Ginny Cheshire, has messed up my medicines. I called the and left a message at 8 a.m. for the nurse to call me on Wednesday. No return call. I called on Thursday at 8 a.m. And said I needed to speak to the nurse about my medicine. That Ginny had my medicine messed up. This is Saturday and I still have not received a phone call. I WILL NOT BE GOING BACK.

Be prepared to be treated as if you are just another number to them. They rarely return phone calls or messages through the portal. Emergency situations are not important and you will wait for months before actions are followed through. I don't mind Dr. Patel being upfront and to the point, but she shows no sympathy and makes excuses for her office staff not following through with insurance approvals. I'm very dissapointed and switching to another rheumatologist.
