Dr Sheikh is an outstanding physician and a wonderful person. She takes time to personally care for and encourage her patients while directing the rheumatology lupus clinic and clinical trials. She is active as a speaker and educator about lupus and immunology and frequently works with the Lupus Foundation. I love having Dr Sheikh as my rheumatologist. Hear her podcast on lupus: https://www.med.unc.edu/medicine/news/chairs-corner/podcasts/lupus
