    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 under his care as well. Now when you go see him you MUST be prepared to wait because he takes his time with all of his patients!!! And that says alot.. He is an amazing Dr.

    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.

    As a 2 yr. patient Dr. Posner is professional and kind the most caring Dr. I've ever had! Never have I been treated with the upmost concern as well as his office staff! I want to give them Kudos for putting up with patients who are not patient, kind or caring! As local Phoenix women I am grateful for there service!

    The wait is 4 hours long and lucky if you get a chair. Rude and nasty office manager and unprofessional Doctor looking at my chest. 2 1/2 years later I left and got a letter saying I was fired as a patient. This place needs to be investigated.... Multiple dents in my skin from botched steroid injections.

    2 hours I've been waiting...worse service ever. Tried to make it better by shoving me in a room, but made me wait even longer! Worse experience ever.

    He's the best, he has the best bed side matter. He listens to your medical issues. I would and have recommended him to friends and family. He's awesome. Patty office manager is awesome, she gets to the problem right away. Good caring people there. I can't thank them enough.

    Archaic environment. No electronic medical records. Staff want same patient information that was given at last appointment even if nothing has changed. Wait times are ridiculous 45 minutes to up to 2 hours. First appointment, Doctor left in the middle of exam to take a phone call. Didn't even stay for my last appointment. Got fed up and left. Would never recommend this doctor to anyone. He needs to retire.
    New York, NY |
    Horrible !!!! as a new patient who never got to see the dr after I had to wait over a month to even see him my appointment was cancel n then I was told I have to wait for a cancellation... If this how they treat a patient they never seen hate to see how the treat a patient they do have... Mind you I have been in pain going on for three months and they lack of concern is awe Full!!!!
