She was extremely rude, I have fibromyalgia do 12 years now and she told me I'm 32 I just need to get used to my body feeling different because I'm in my thirties and not my twenties anymore and I'll adjust to it. She does not know enough about fibromyalgia.

Susan Ward was both professional and very friendly. She took all the time I was hoping for to discuss my symptoms and test results. She was a joy to have as a doctor, and I highly recommend her. She is busy and hard to schedule on short notice, but she is worth the schedule waiting time.

I waited 2 weeks to hear back from the office after my family doctor sent a referal. They never did call so I had to call them only to hear that they wouldn't see me and I should see an orthopedist. I have a bad back but my family doctor thinks its also severe arthritis which has shown up in MRI's....more
