Felt dismissed by this physician. Despite telling him how bad my pain is, he didn't seem to care. No recommendations. Oh wait he had one recommendation. He told me I had a ganglion cyst on my bunion and to whack it with a book. And he thought this was quite funny. Very unprofessional, humiliated and laughed at by a doctor.

A most compassionate physician who cares about his patients and always asks you if you have any questions about your problems, his decisions etc. Knowledgable, helpful, kind and caring. Would recommend positively to anyone with rheumatological problems.
