Ratings for Dr. Michael B. Rozboril
I've had 4 rheumatologists over the years; I have a chronic & complicated condition, and I can honestly say that Dr. Rozboril is head & shoulders above the rest. At every visit he spends a lot of time with me going over symptoms, how treatments are going, and what the prognosis is. He has a great "bedside manner" and actually looks at you when you're having a conversation - although he is savvy with a computer the screen is not the focus of the visit. He always inquires how his prescribed treatment is working. I've been impressed with his big picture view. He has vastly improved my quality of life over the last year because of his diagnostic abilities and knowledge of available treatments. He has increased my understanding of my disease without making me feel like a moron. His staff is professional and efficient. I've never had issues with getting prescriptions or refills taken care of. His office is a low-stress environment that makes this patient feel at home. I recommend him highly.
I am disabled due to Fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. By his words and actions, this doctor demonstrated that he simply does not believe in Fibromyalgia as a real condition. He was uninterested in listening to my history or my symptoms and recommended medications that I have tried unsuccessfully in the 10+ years that I have been dealing with this condition. He showed absolutely no empathy for me, he was dismissive of the positive things that I do to improve my quality of life, including swimming, warm water aerobics, massage, etc. He insisted that the only way to improve my life was buy a recumbent bicycle and use it to exercise. On a limited income, exactly how am I supposed to do that? I also found it disturbing that of the 4 rheumatologists I've seen in the last 10+ years he is the only one who insisted on humiliating me by having me fully undress and examining me in a paper gown. I would never see him again and never recommend him. EVER.
Seems like he only likes to monitor stable conditions. Monitor liver enzymes only on monthly labs even though never elevated, but does not monitor disease activity. Squeezes patients hands even after being told they hurt,can see they are red, hot , swollen. Why squeeze?? He does not like his patients to be knowledgeable, does not like his patients looking up information on internet. When patient suggests changing the treatment plan becoming more aggressive he acts like he's mad, like the patient did something wrong. Does not seem to notice symptoms indicative of complications of the disease. Lazy. When Rx needed for nausea/vomiting it took 2 days for Rx to be called in. Don't feel he cares, don't feel his staff cares. When you explain that the occurrence indicates that they just don't care, they suddenly are so caring, but the next appointment is the same...as if I am disturbing their day. The office is very relaxed atmosphere, often feel like I am disrupting their day with appt
