This review is primarily for Naitik Panwala, Dr. Deveshwar's PA. He is a sensitive listener, a clear, thoughtful explainer of symptoms related to rheumatoid and osteo arthritis. He helps the patient, , my wife, understand the value and application of a specific medication. He and Dr. Deveshwar work well as a team.

I've been a patient of Dr. Deveshwar's for several years. She and/or her PA has/have always had enough time for me to feel I've had all my questions answered and concerns dealt with. She has anticipated how various conditions would progress and helped prepare me or prevent them. She shows continuing knowledge in her field.

I have been coming to Dr Deveshwar & Dr. Panwala (PA) for several years. Love them both! I will say that Dr. Panwala is so good on explaining things to you on my illnesses of RA & Fibromyalgia. The only thing that I see is getting my prescriptions correct sent over to the drug store & my forms sent over for help on my Enbrel is not so good sometimes. Not sure if its the drug store or who?Overall they are good bunch of people!!
in Burlington, NC |
I have been a patient here for many years. If I could give 10 stars I would. This doctor and her PA Naitik Panwala are so very caring, compassionate and very knowledgeable. My most recent experience was just last week. I was having an acute flare up of my symptoms, along with some new problems. Mr. Panwala saw me right away, he spent time diagnosing and prescribing a treatment course. I am so thankful as always with the care I received.

Dr. Deveshwar and her P.A. Mr. Panwala treat my mother for Polymyalgia Rheumatica and have done an amazing job keeping her pain under control. They actually listen to her concerns and questions and take time to thoroughly answer them. They even explain to me what they are treating her with and why. They also have been trying to get her to a place where can reduce the amount of medicine she takes. We have been exceptionally pleased with their care of my mother.

After years of trying to figure out why I constantly hurt, I finally got answers & relief when I found Dr. Deveshwar. 13 years of tests, examinations and being told "we can't find anything wrong" (i.e. - it's all in your head), left me depressed and feeling hopeless.

Dr Deveshwar is the only doctor who properly diagnosed me after many years of suffering with chronic pain, fatigue, etc AND gave me a treatment plan that didn't include tons of prescriptions to mask my symptoms. She gave me a more herbal/supplemental approach to managing and minimizing my symptoms.

Great doctor in all respects.

Dr. Deveshwar is an excellent physician. She is extremely thorough and listens to what her patience have to say. She is willing to try any of the new medications, something that my previous rheumatologist failed to do. She has a very pleasant personality and I trust her implicitly .

in Greensboro, NC |
Dr. Desveshwar is the best doctor I have ever had. I came to her from another rheumatologist who could not figure out what was wrong with me. She immediately diagnosed me and began treatment. I have been better ever since. She goes over the diagnosis thoroughly and has a great bedside manner. She makes sure that she is following up with blood work as well. I would recommend her to anyone that is having problems with arthritis type symptoms. I can't brag enough about her. She is great!
Greensboro, NC |
I have been very happy with Dr. Deveshwar and also with her P.A. They take time to talk to me about any questions I have, and explain treatment options and blood work etc. The office staff are friendly. The only thing that doesn't get 5 stars from me is the main waiting room, which is a bit shabby, but if the doctor is good I can put up with that. The location is convenient to the hospital and the blood lab.
Greensboro, NC |
Dr. Deveshwar is an outstanding rheumatologist. She is caring, knowledgeable, thorough, and never acts like she can't wait to move on to the next patient. Dr. Deveshwar and Mr. Panwala (PA) answer my questions in language I can understand and explain everything to me step by step when performing an injection. The office staff are friendly and helpful, both in person and on the phone.
