    Dr. Hammad Ali (rheumatology fellow) is one of the most caring, thorough physicians I have had the pleasure either seeing or working with in my almost 20 years of nursing. Dr. Piranavan is extremely kind and thorough as well. They both made sure I was familiar with and comfortable with my plan of care moving forward.

      He answered all questions thoroughly, making sure I understood my treatment and medications. He never makes me feel rushed and seems genuinely concerned for my health. I have messaged several times with questions on MyChart & he quickly provides an answer or gives me directions. Knowing that he is accessible makes me feel that I have a doctor who truly cares about his patients.

      He explained things to me better than others had. The doctor is very soft spoken I would recommend a see through mask for him that way you can also read his lips instead of asking him to repeat

      Dr. Piranavan is very knowledgeable! He explained a few aspects of erosive osteoarthritis that were new to me. I've read and studied the disease on my own for over a decade. His information helped me understand why the disease is hard to diagnose and treat. I appreciated his time very much!!

      I would transfer to another Rheumatolgy clinic if there was another 1 close. The constant changing physician is not helping me & response to issues is horrible! Call on Monday will be lucky to hear anything by Friday

      Dr. Piranavan is both a wonderful care-giver and educator. He was very careful to answer all my questions and took much time to explain the science behind his answers. I feel very fortunate that I have him follow me with my RA.
