Dr. Anita Zachariah is a very good rheumatologist in NW Indiana. She is out of the Hammond Clinic in Munster, IN. She is young but really seems to know what she is doing. She is very kind and concerned. She will actually get on the phone and talk to me when I call with a question or concern. She talked with me for quite some time while in the office and I never felt rushed or like she was not really listening to me. It was actually very strange to me since I do not really have good luck with doctors. I would definitely recommend her to anyone in the NW Indiana area.

Dr. Leyka Barbosa, Dallas TX. Located in Medical City Hospital-building C.

She's awesome! Started treating me at age 16, finally able to go back to her when my insurance at my current job switched. Super flexible and willing to work with you to find a treatment plan you are able to adhere to.

N. Sacramento Valley
Dr. Harchetan Sing Sandhu is a wonderful Rheumy in Chico, CA. Tel 530-342-1310; Fax 530-342-1327. His name might be hard to pronounce, but he is really great. Fairly young, willing to try the newest and more aggressive meds. He was for starting me on Humira from my first visit, just needed some lab tests, x-rays and a MRI to prove my case to the insurance. He is really nice and he listens to me. I was 69 when I first started seeing him and I expected him to just say I had Ostio and old age. He took me seriously and didn't let something like age affect his DX.

I have used Dr Gary Botstein in Decatur. For those around Dekalb medical center. I like him alot, I have been to Dr Parris, nice guy as was Dr Hays Wilson in downtown Atlanta. But neither of them seem to be terribly interested in finding what works or the progression or even researching the causes. They treat the symptoms with pain meds and collect the co-pays.

Dr Botstein is constantly documenting every little change, wants to know my diet, my range of motion, my exercises, all my other issues to see if there are connecting points, communicates live while in the office with other Doctors to see if they have commonalities.
I walk out of there thinking, he is truly trying to find the miracle.....I drive 30 miles to see him.
