It seems that I am misunderstanding the doctor but it might have to due with the pronunciation of her words. I have misunderstood dosage on the medicine prescribed and I really think it was due to her accent because the prescription said otherwise. Then having to do lab work again because the order was not completely send was also something of a disappointment. We all make mistakes but this one hurt.

The doctor and nurses are wonderful. They worked together with the infusion nurse to accommodate us and made our visit exceptional.The only problem we encountered was with making our next appointment at checkout. The clerk got 3 out of 4 tasks wrong.I was not aware of the mistakes until I got home read the paperwork and rechecked my chart. She made our next appointment with the wrong doctor, failed to make our coordinating appointment with infusion and put the wrong city on an address change. what a hassle to get this corrected.

Dr. Olga is so sweet, kind, and caring. I feel very lucky to have her for a Rheumatologist. She always makes me feel as if she cares about me as a person, patient, and genuinely cares what happens to me. She always gives me a real hug when I leave and that may seem insignificant to some but it sometimes can make the difference in a good/bad day. She is a great doctor and I would highly recommend her.
