Dr Quinet has treated me for the past 6+ years. He is very knowledgable and experienced and has known exactly what treatment I needed, for a very rare disease called Myositis, since my first appointment with him in early 2010. I believe his Rheumatology/Myositis expertise and knowledge was crucial in saving my life in 2010 and 2011 (when other specialists struggled with my rare medical condition) and giving me the quality of life I have today. I would highly recommend Dr Quinet and his staff.
