Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Everakes "There's always a continuity of relationship going on with patients with rheumatologic illnesses. It's not usually a one-time visit. I like that continuity. I like to have a long-term relationship with my patients. I want them to think of me as just like a warm, compassionate, knowledgeable physician, not some specialist in just rheumatoid arthritis and just a lupus doctor. I have some history myself with physical impairment and disability due to a motor vehicle accident many years ago. I certainly have had many of the complaints that my patients come to me with, and I do have a sense that they're well aware of that. And that when they explain their pains and their discomforts and their problems in daily living to me, that I have that extra bit of empathy, coming from someone who's walked that road."

What People Say About Dr. Sarah Everakes, MD
Very uninformed and dismissive. Not sure why she makes it seem like she's very understanding and empathetic in her Rush profile video, but it's misleading. She barely talked to me during my first appointment and performed a 30 second physical exam. She didn't mention slightly elevated counts from...Read More

I was disappointed that I drove an hour to see Dr. Everakes just for her to tell me that fibromyalgia is not disabling. Fibromyalgia completely changed my life and limits my every day activities.
