Had my first appointment and yes it took a while but I barely got the appointment the day before thanks to Patricia going above and beyond to make sure I was seen. I loved meeting Dr. Posner! Feels like I won the lottery. You can only understand if you've had to suffer thru horrible Doctors time...more

They cancel appoinment so many time at last minutes. And ask patience visit often although they feel good. If you don't revisit him in 3 momths ,they will not refill your precription.

Dr. Posner is the absolute best Rheumatologist I've ever had!! He is kind, understanding, down to earth, humble, caring, and respectful.. He actually listens to what you're dealing with unlike most doctors these days who could care less..I've actually sent my mom and my cousin to him and they are...more

The office staff was very difficult to work with and every time I had an apt I waited 2-3 hours and it just seems insane that this was their "norm"........I left the practice and will NOT recommend to ANYONE!

Yes you will have to wait quite awhile - and no, he doesn't have email and electronic files. But he's smart and seems to take a genuine interest. I have Lupus and I have been to other rheumatologists and he is by far worth the wait.
