Ratings for Dr. Raj Carmona
I have been a patient of Dr. Carmona for 5yrs now since my body aggressively decided to turn against me and he immediately diagnosed me with Psoriasitic arthritis. When I developed this it was over Christmas time and he wasted no time in seeing me the day after New Years once his office reopened from holidays. He has always been very kind and sympathetic as I have had ups and some major downs in this battle. He always takes the time to explain his course of plan and why he has chosen it and should I disagree he listens and fully considers my feelings and opinions. In desperate times I have called his office needing to get an immediate appointment and they have always fit me in either the same day or the next day which ia rare with most Specialists! The staff at his office are always kind and pleasant making me fel comfortable the moment I walk or hobble in. I can not say enough what a wonderful Specialist he is and how anyone would be lucky to have him for your Doctor. Please disregard any negative talk you have heard as there will always be negative people that find fault and if you are refered or can request Dr. Camona do so and trust me you will be thankful knowing your future life is in good hands.
Dr. Raj Carmona is one of the most respectful and knowledgeable doctors I have ever known. He is very professional and always spends a lot of his time and effort to ensure the wellbeing of his patients. I can come to him with any concern, major or minor, and he always gives me his undivided attention. He takes his time to explain his findings to ensure that I understand, and is always patient. I would highly recommend Dr. Carmona to anyone, he is outstanding.
Had to take me on as my main rheumatologist was off work for medical reasons & eventually was off work so long that Dr. Carmona asked me if I wanted to join his practice permanently when it was obvious the other doctor would be off longer still. He had always tx'ted me as if I was his permanent patient from the beginning. He has made countless suggestions regarding my very stubborn disease process. He collaborates with my other specialists all the time, yet gives me latitude & respect as a person who has lived with my disease since a toddler & as a medical professional who is as knowledgeable as he is about my specific disease. Why some of you people have had difficulty with Dr. Carmona I don't know but I can reassure anyone reading these; please remember there are (2) two sides to every story. Somehow I can't recognize, in my mind, of the doctor you speak of.
Outstanding doctor, rare to find these days. I was seen by another arthritis dr in Niagara who put a needle in my knee and sent me off even though I was having swelling in many joints and could not turn in bed. Dr. Carmona was very patient, diagnosed me very quickly and now I am almost back to normal. He spent a lot of time dicussing treatment options and gave me information to look over. Highly recommend him 110% !!!
I was referred to Dr Carmona for joint pain and was pretty sure it was RA. He did blood work and a RF was not quite high enough so he told me I didn't have it and was quite rude about it. I had all the other symptoms, but he discharged me from his service despite me being 24 and not able to walk. I went back to him (accidentally got referred to the same dr) to get a second opinion 6 months later. My blood work was off the charts and I couldn't move and now had permanent damage to my joints because I hadn't been on medication to stop it. He then started me on a medication that you have to flush out of your system for 2 years before having kids when I specifically told him I was hoping to have kids within the year. Luckily I googled it before I took it. He also weighed me to prescribe the medication and told me I weighed 35 lbs more then I do and prescribed me way to high a dose of another medication. I told him I didn't weigh that much and he laughed and said the scales don't lie.
