Patient Comments (1)
in Reno, NV |
Wasn't helpful in offering solutions for flare ups (my old rheumatologist retired and was replaced by Dr. Chavez). Having complex autoimmune issues is hard, and having a thorough, competent doctor is critical. She really didn't do anything for me. Couldn't even give me a proper taper schedule for my steroids, and took several days to write refills for medicines that I desperately needed and couldn't stop abruptly. This is irresponsible and dangerous of her. Horrible doctor!
