Dr. Ning is a caring and knowledgeable doctor. He always listens to my symptoms and has helped me find relief from my rheumatoid arthritis. He is quick to respond to any questions I have and have always found help getting prescription refilled.
Raleigh, NC |
Has a good bedside manner but does not seem very knowledgeable re medications and has a limited knowledge of some forms of arthritis. I was very disappointed in him. In the end he did not help my condition. I saw him for over a year and a half and my condition worsened over that time. I have found another doctor.

I have been dealing with an aggressive rash for the past 2 1/2 years that no other physician has been treat me successfully for yet. Once I tested positive for Rheumatoid, I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Ning. He and his staff were friendly, courteous & very efficient. Never waited more than 10 minutes for an appt. He was able to give me medication that has improved my rash tremendous! Very thankful I have met him.

Raleigh NC |
I had horrific pain in my hands and feet due to new onset of RA. After having a very bad experience with another rheumatologist I wasn't sure what to expect. Dr. Ning is so compassionate and patient. He had already reviewed my online forms so he walked into the appoinment familiar with the condition I was in. He was very thorough in the exam and explained all of my options and meds available. I would highly recommend him anyone dealing with arthritic issues.
in North Carolina |
I saw him for joint pain. He prescribed meds that start wkg after 6 wks. I told him the meds did not help, my pain was progressively becoming severe and I feared that something is seriously wrong. I informed him I would find another doctor if he can't diagnose/treat me. He quickly released me & I was referred to Duke (I now have a 4 month wait as a new patient!) I wasted a whole year with this doctor, while my joints are probably becoming permanently damaged each day because of his incompetence.
