Misdiagnosis
A regular patient when hip pain started .Got worse and worse.Told me it was bursitis.Ordered PT.Used an old X-ray. After 9 months of agony went to another Doctor.Needed a complete hip replacement. This doctor is not interested in patient care, just his administrative positions at the hospital and books tv appearances. Do not recommend.

Have had PSA for over 17 years. Was examined thoroughly by an NP. Went through my past PSA medication list. Have tried a lot of different meds. My external symptoms were considered nothing. Have used various pain meds to get through the day. Was offered nothing as Dr. Lahita felt they would get flagged. Have never felt so marginalized talking with a doctor. Felt like I did something wrong. . If If I hadn't suggested a steroid, I would have gotten nothing. In fact that's what I got from this visit. NOTHING!! MY previous rheumatologist abandoned me and all his patients and was given Dr. Lahita and I feel he too, has abandoned me.
