Dr. Thaila has been my doctor since 2010, and seen me through some really rough times, Have found her to be knowledgeable, patient, and more than willing to explain things til I understand. I have had RA since late 1970's, and dealt with my share of Rheumatologist, and she and her staff are by far my favorite. K. Shanefelt

Technically very good but can be unpredictably rude.
in Santa Cruz, CA |
She is rushed and is a terrible listener. In a specialty such as rhuematology where a lot is based on symptoms and not labs she definitely needs to work on this. Due to the above she has made a few clinical errors that could have been avoided. She is not thorough either with her exams.Not once has she examined my joints or the swelling. After my last appointment where she got offended (because I asked her for a specific blood test ) she was disrespectful and rude and has now lost a patient.
