Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Prashad "At East End Rheumatology, we pride ourselves on excellent patient care. Every patient receives all the time and attention they need at their visit. I do not believe in rushing patients out of the office because their '15 minutes are up', despite the delay it may sometimes create in the schedule. I believe it is a testimony to the comprehensive, compassionate care they receive in this practice that patients travel long distances, even coming from other states and other countries, to see me. "
