    Gradzka, Dr. Malgorzata I.
    Dr. Gradzka seems knowledgeable and caring, though she is fast-talking, has an accent, and is a bit eccentric. The visit went as well as can be expected. The problems came after the visit. First off, one of the prescriptions she wrote had a problem and it took 4 business days to get it straightened out since her office is poor at returning phone calls. Secondly, I had to reschedule my follow-up appointment. I called and left multiple messages over the span of a week and they can't be bothered to return my phone calls. I've decided it's time to see another Dr.

    Tae Chung MD
    Perhaps it was simply a clash of personalities, but I left Dr. Chung's office in tears on both occasions that I saw him. The first time he already seemed predisposed to see my condition as solely related to fibromyalgia rather than Lyme disease, but ordered a full panel of blood tests to check for rheumatoid issues. He was fairly brusque.
    On my second visit, he told me none of my issues were caused by Lyme and handed me a pamphlet on fibromyalgia. In addition, he began a lecture on exercise and healthy eating. When I interrupted to tell him that my current symptoms had begun when I was doing a combination of bike rides, hikes, strength training and yoga on a daily basis, he then told me that I must have started exercising too quickly. When I told him that I had done so under the supervision of a physical therapist, he just went back to telling me I needed to exercise more.
    The entire experience was demeaning and had no benefit, for any doctor could have ordered the lab tests. Dr. Chung has won plenty of awards (most of which cover the walls of his waiting room), but I left his office feeling humiliated and angry. It certainly didn't inspire me to "wake up every morning and ask myself how to fit exercise into my day."

    Northern Virginia Center For Arthritis
    Dr. Chou was friendly, and asked a lot of questions about my pain. Within minutes she had diagnosed certain pain in my arms, and the at-home remedy. Physical therapy was recommended (and performed). I am now able to manage the pain without the expense (and additional pain) of frequent testing.

    Chou, Dr. Maria
    I see Dr. Chou every three months and I think she's great. She has a great bedside manner and always makes me feel very comfortable asking questions and voicing concerns. The only negatives are that they are often running behind schedule and the staff at the front desk and on the phone leave much to be desired. There is one that is friendly enough, but many times they are very rude and short with me on the phone and in person.

    Rochmis, Dr. Paul G
    We trusted Dr Rochmis to care for my mother-in-law. She presented with all the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, but when tested she came up negative and so he ignored her symptoms and refused to treat her for anything other than osteoarthritis. After 12 years in his care she had to have a very painful knee replacement. After her operation, we asked the surgeon if he had seen any evidence of rheumatoid in the knee. He said he had rarely seen a knee so badly damaged by rheumatoid arthritis and estimated that she had suffered from RA for at least SEVEN YEARS!!!! When my wife saw him, she told him she had been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and needed his help since her rheumatologist had just retired. He told her that there is "no such thing" and handed her an outdated article from The New Yorker which laid out both sides of the debate. She handed it back to him and told him that her husband had read it to her already. "What did you think," he asked. "I divorced him!" she replied. Might I clarify that I am her second husband and that Dr Rochmis won't be treating any member of our family ever again!

    When I first went to Dr.Z five years ago, I already knew I had a rare autoimmune disease and suspected other disease processes at work as well. She knew right from the start what to look for. I was given medical orders for many tubes of blood as well as other laboratory tests. There is a Quest lab on site. She listened to my story, did an examination, asked her questions for an hour on our first visit together. I signed requests to get previous medical records. She told me that first day that she thought all of this probably started with a tick bite while I lived in CT and resultant Lyme disease. As the disease processes have been uncovered through the years, it seems she was right. I have a laundry list of diseases and my treatment has varied as needed to fight each process. I first became ill in January 1996. I have never had such an intelligent proactive rheumatologist as Dr Z.

    Saba, Dr. Claudia A
    Dr, Saba's practice has become very busy, although there are several other rheumatologists in the practice. (Northern Virginia Center of Arthritis). Occasionally, when my arthritis became unbearable, and I wanted to see her in a short time, I was not able to get to her, but her associates are equally thorough, so I never felt I was getting 2nd hand treatment. She is very easy to talk to, thorough in her exam, explains what to expect from the medications, the pros and cons of available treatments. The only problem I have had with the practice is that I have not always been able to get my test results without a couple of phone calls, and my lab work is not always sent to my primary physician, although that should be done. I have learned that there are longer waits for afternoon appts. as opposed to morning appts., but as I know this will occur, I bring a book, and relax.

    Nguyen, Dr. Phong Q
    I have been seeing him for 6 years, and he is very professional. He has a funny sense of humor. He has made the Washingtonian best doctors' list several times. He is a good guy and has certainly helped my pain levels.
