It took 3 months to get appointment. Dr more interested in who referred me to her . Had a MRI done Dr never called to go over results , office staff member called said test was negative. I told them my pain in my hands continued and she said would tell the Dr. I never heard a word back. I knew then this Doctor was not someone I wanted to rely on for my health.

Dr Singla did an excellent job of going into a great deal of detail in determining my diagnosis. She conducted numerous tests, referred me to other specialists and conferred with other Rheumatologists as my case was quite complicated. At the end of the day she developed a treatment program that is working well - I feel amazing. Throughout she listened carefully to my concerns and provided a considerable amount of information to help me educate my self!!

I would recommend Dr. Shikha Singla to anyone who suffers from the symptoms of R.A. Dr. Singla has never rushed me in any way while in her office and always takes the time to get to know me so she is better able to meet I my needs. There has never been a rush while in her care. I realize now Dr. Singla is also very knowledgeable in her specialized field. This in itself brings me peace of mind knowing I have a Dr. who not only really cares about her patients but knows how to treat R.A.

Dr. Singla is a valuable asset to the rheumatology department at Ochsner. She has an unbelievable passion for medicine which is so refreshing. She is super sharp and gets to the root of the problem(s) quickly. After just two visits, and only one prescription-not an antidepressant-I feel better than I did at 20. She is definitely the little lightning bolt of healthy, honest inspiration I needed at 47. Lupus can be a freightening disease, but with her as my doctor, it's not so scary.

She is the very best doctor I have ever had in the 71 years of my life. She is Altima professional that any hospital would gladly have as an associate. Oschsner is extremely lucky to have a person such as Dr. Single on their staff. Mr. Bob Tod Slidell, La.

Dr. Singla's treatments have allowed me to enjoy life again! Just the combination of meds without painkillers (which I don't like) displays her expertise!

I truly thank the day I walked into her office. She has been very helpful and I trust her as a doctor. She takes the time to listen to me and then she takes time to explain my treatment. In fact, everyone in the office is nice. In fact, I have already recommended her to one of my friends.
