I’ve been under his care for two yrs now and each time I’ve had testing done he’s never gotten back to me with results I have called multiple times to speak to him and he’s never returned my calls. I don’t consider a Dr good who doesn’t have a good communication system with his / her patient. I’m currently looking for a new rheumatologist
