I saw this doctor about ten years ago and because he didn't believe that I have RA took me off a drug which was working really well and put me into a major flare which hasn't subsided since. I have suffered the most awful pain in my hands since then and have had hand surgery due to the RA, a transposition of the ulner nerve in my right arm directly due to the RA. I had a second knee replacement in March, 2015 but I am not sure if it was due to the RA or OA (so I can't blame him for that).

I went to Dr Given as a second opinion after doctor failed to diagnose me with psoriatic arthritis and wanted to start treatment for lupus. When I made the appointment the receptionist was very helpful in gathering all my labs and tests and I was able to get an appointment within only a few days. Dr Given was confident that I did not have lupus but PsA and he has never pushed me to start treatment I wasn't ready for. I would highly recommend him. Wait time has only been 10-15 mins.

in 1990 I had a Fever of Unknown Origin. After almost a year with other doctors, many tests and even major exploratory surgery, I still had no diagnoses. Than I went to see Dr. Given and he successfully treated me. I now live in NJ over an hour and a half away from Dr. Givens office but I still prefer to make the trip to see him when I need.
