Rheumatology reviews in Springfield Gardens

    Sari Edelman
    She's a physician that listens to what you have to say and bases her recommendations on that. Even if it's not in her particular field of expertise, she will provide great recommendations for other physicians. And, if she has knowledge on something she will share it with you.

    The waits are sometimes long and the reason that the waits are long is that he spends a lot of time with each patient, he's very thorough. He was treating my knees and found another problem with my hand.  I had knee surgery and that surgeon told me if it isn't better or you don't see an improvement the only thing I can do is I'll recommended you to somebody that does knee replacement. I saw the rheumatologist and he prescribed me something that I rub on my knees it works like a leaf. You rub it on so it doesn't have to pass through your kidneys to get to the point of inflammation. You rub it on your knees I do twice a day and my knee where I couldn't bent it I had to pick it up to get into a car I can bend knees I can kneel at church, I have two knees again. No surgery.

    Andrew Porges MD
    My Primary care physician suggested I go to Dr. Porges after I mentioned I was unhappy with my prior Rhumatologist. His office made an appointment reasonably quick. Dr Porges spent a good amount of time interviewing me about my issue and suggested a full blood workup. is office called me back with thw results and I saw him again for a course of treatment. Unfortunately my body is not reponding to treatment as expected but this is not due to anything on his or his offices fault. (I have seen many Drs. over the last 10 yrs. concerning this and similiar issues.) I would definately seggest Dr Porges for anyone in the need of Rhumatology.

    Lichtbroun, Dr. Alan S
    Practical things: His practice is in an office park and is easily accessible. Off-street parking is fine. I've never been happy with the office park's snow removal service, so be careful. His outside office door is only a few feet from the curb, but they're inclined, which can make it harder to navigate. The waiting room is small but adequate; the chairs are a little small for big people like me. The rest room is close-by and accessible. He has good office hours; however, if you need him between Friday afternoon and Saturday night, he is not available; he has an excellent service that he uses. BTW, Dr. L's office/professional staff is great and very efficient and helpful. His nurse knows everything, and she draws blood more painlessly than almost anyone who has ever searched my arms for a usable vein. Dr. L has a lot of seniors and elderly people as patients, and he knows how to treat them and to be gentle with them and their issues.( I suppose I should be honest and say "our issues," but I'm not gonna!) However, his practice includes people of all ages, and I have seen young professionals just as often. It's the sort of practice that seems to draw patients who like to chat with total strangers in the waiting room. One of the things I like about Dr. L is that he uses Alternative Medicine as an adjunct to his practice. He even studied acupuncture in China at one point in his life. (He says he now knows enough about it be able to recommend that patients seek out a "real" acupuncturist when appropriate.) He has a large number of neutraceuticals from places like Life Extension, and essentials oils from Young Living, that he can provide. He also has a colleague who has a space in his office, who can offer more complicated kinds of alternative treatments in addition to Dr. L's western medicine. Dr. L is always helpful, but he has never been a "pill-pusher." I've asked him about medications and treatments that he frankly said No to, and explained exactly why they weren't going to help me or why they weren't worth the kinds of co-pays I'd have. On several occasions he called colleagues right then and there to ask for their opinion on something important. When my insurance (now Medicare) balked at paying for treatments more modern than they were, he has always been able to explain to them why it was the only way to go. Sometimes I have had to wait 20-30 minutes past my appointment times, but I never have been upset. Once I'm in his office, I feel like I'm the only other person in the world. He never rushes me or goes back and forth to other patients. It's even rare for him to take a phone call while in the middle of an appointment. Nowadays not many people talk about professional ethics, but it's become clear to me over the years that Dr. L walks the walk. He told me he had once planned on becoming a rabbi; I'm so grateful he chose medicine instead.

    I saw one of the associates, Dr. Neil J. Conter, M.D., F.A.C.R. He spent about an hour, thoughtfully asking questions, reviewing history, and completing an examination. He is super smart, a great communicator, and a problem solver. He is compassionate and a fine diagnostician. He is a published scientist in the field, and keeps on top of new research. I came away with good information and solutions for relief. As an aside, I noticed framed magazines of the "Top Ten Doctors in New York" genre, and the practice has been listed for years in rheumatology. I will go back in six months and would recommend them highly.

    Charles Weber MD
    Shorter wait time than usual in the waiting room and exam room. Dr. Weber is very friendly and very chatty. His appointments take a long time, but are worth it because he always does a full rheumatological exam and addresses all questions and concerns.

    Peggy Garjian MD
    She is very thorough and was actually so thorough that she diagnosed a problem that I had that was outside her specialty and sent me to the appropriate doctor. She does enjoy her work and she likes being good at what she does. She is personable and a really great lady. She gets A?s across the board.

    She examined all of my trigger points and took examined me thoroughly. She recommended aqua therapy. She had excellent bedside manner and answered all my questions. I didn't feel rushed at all. She moved to Manhattan and I haven't seen the dr. who replaced her yet.
