I would want no other Doctor for my RA. Sadly I had to leave him when I lost my insurance and have been without care for a couple of years. I have however gotten insurance back and my primary is making the referral for my return. He is such a wonderful man, eases your nerves with jokes and he has them let me tell you! Is very thorough when he explains what he needs you to do, he doesn't just tell you, he has you do the exercises a couple of times in front of him so that he knows you understand. Most importantly, he listens and you can tell it hurts him to see any patient of his "hurting" He will do whatever he can possibly do to help. (now a days they are limited and can't be blamed for that) If you are looking for a great rheumatologist, no need to look any further, you found him! FIVE STARS!
