Dr. Pagent is one of the most knowledgeable, most understanding, and kindest doctors I have ever met. He explains and recommends solutions that people can actually live with and still enjoy their life. He sincerely cares about people and does truly answer emails in real time, you never feel alone or that it will take a day or two for him to get back. Even on Sundays! He has the best heart Ive ever met and I pray will not retire soon, it would be very difficult to find another gem like him. He is one of the finest doctors I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

You won't find a more experienced physician with a nuanced view of autoimmune diseases. Cares deeply for patients. He is a skilled diagnostician and supportive caring doctor.

Dr. Paget has helped me through the thick and thin of my Lupus. He has so much experience with auto-immune, that I know he understands my problems and always recommends a solution to put me out of pain. He is highly active on email so I get his responses almost real time whenever there is a problem. His awesome candor is a great plus!

I accompanied my wife for a consultation about what she thought was a serious problem. Before booking a consultation with such a senior physician, we wondered if he be too busy for an individual patient, given his extraordinary qualification, or would he be the best choice because of his years of experience.. We immediately discovered that Dr. Paget's smile is a clue to his wonderful and uplifting demeanor. His great depth of knowledge merged with his compassion for people, We both left smiling

Dr. Paget is not only at the top of his field, he is one of the kindest human beings I have ever met. There is not one thing I could possibly say that is even slightly negative about him. He is brilliant, responsive, funny, enormously caring and easily one of the finest doctors if not THE finest doctor you will have the privilege of working with.

Dr Paget may be tops in his field but don't try to contact him with a problem! I realize he must be extremely busy but he should remember his patients would like to speak with him if necessary. The email system he has is nonsense!

The positive is that Dr Paget is considered the top in his field and seems to deserve that honor. He is professional and a real gentleman. He responds to emails almost instantly. The negative is that his office is overloaded with work, and inefficient at getting back on track. Don't ever expect to be able to reach them on the phone, and find someone else to do your prescription refills. It just doesn't pay to wait for them.

Dr. Paget is one of the best doctors I have ever had the privilege of working with. He is always easily accessible and quick to assuage concerns about my health. He explains my condition and symptoms thoroughly. He is technologically up to date and quick to print out articles outlining the latest research regarding my disease. He wastes no time with treatments that do not work, and he is a wonderful partner to have in my journey with an autoimmune disease.
