Ratings for Dr. Sheetal K. Chhaya
For 20yrs have been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis my RA dr passed away went to see Dr. Chhya and according to her I don't have RA. I have pain had wrist replacement 6 hip clean outs not hip replacement yet and more this winter but I don't have RA. Think twice before going.
I'm shocked at the way they treated me. The appointments are booked for months and then when I finally get an appointment there was horrible holiday traffic. I called to let them know I was running late and when I got there Dr Chhaya had already left. As the last appointment of the day you'd think she could wait a few extra minutes especially after I called. The amount of stress this has put me through to simply see this rheumatoid arthritis doctor is ridiculous.
She did not seem competent about her assessments during my visits nor did she keep my complaints in mind. I wonder if she was even listening or read my medical records. She didn't answer my questions to my understanding and when she gave her opinion on my condition it was not clear. It was as if she was guessing.
Dr. Chhaya is so compassionate, genuine, positive, and humble! I went to 1 other Rheumatologist who treated me so unkind and told me there was nothing wrong with me, but she got right to the root of the problem and put together a treatment plan immediately. I feel very fortunate she is my doctor!
She is one of the best doctor's I have ever had. If it wasn't for her going the extra mile to find out the cause of my pain I am not sure what I would have done. I went to at least four other doctors and all of them combined didn't seem to have a clue. I would recomend her 100%.
Very nice doctor! Listened and was very friendly when I was scared about the way I was feeling. I was looking forward to her being my Rheum but she suddenly retired. I was transferred to an impatient grump who dissmissed everything she had told me (not her fault I got transferred to him) I went to a different Rheum in Gilbert. If she ever comes out of retirement I'd go back to her in a heartbeat!
I went in to see Dr Chhaya as a new patient. She was so sweet and nice. She was very honest with me. I went in to evaulate high level of CRP (C-Reactive Protien) even though I am 30 years old. She was very honest with me that there may not be something wrong with me because I have a few symptoms and doesnt want to give me some medication that may make things worsen but she wanted to do some bloodwork to be sure before she makes any recommendations. Her schedule is kind of limited. She can be seen on Mondays and Thursdays. I would recommend her to anyone who needs some help. She has a lot of knowledge as well.
