in Patchogue, NY |
I have been seeing Dr. Fafalak for many years after spending so much time trying to find a doctor who could effectively diagnose and manage my RA issues. Not only has he managed to find the right medication overtime, I am now in full remission. We have worked together over the last few years to effectively wean off many of the meds. He listens really well and takes the necessary time to provide loads of medical knowledge so you walk away with a full understanding of your options.
