Dr. office staff and Dr. Ann Rosenthal went over and above to care for me. I am sad she is moving on to bigger and better things. I wish her well, although will miss her more than excellent care.

Dr Rosenthal has always given me outstanding care and advice on how to manage my R.A. she is exceptional and I am sorry to see her move on. I'm hoping the next Dr. I see in the group is as wonderful as she is.

.My only concern was the phlebotomist, who instead of drawing my blood left her drawing room to take vials to the lab. I had waited 15minutes only to have her post the sign on her door "gone to lab". I questioned, aren't u going to draw me first. After waiting an additional 20 minutes for her to return I left to have labs drawn on the fist floor. I reported Lateshas actions to the representative in the lab department. Having worked in health care for 20 years I know this not correct policy.

After we spoke and she examined me, she had a good idea of what was wrong with me.She then took fluid from my knee, examined it under a microscope and had a diagnosis for me during this one appointment. I was very thankful and impressed. I have complete confidence in Dr. Rosenthal, and this makes me very happy to be under her care.
