everyone in the Rheumatology dept. is fabulous. we rarely wait long for our appointment and if we do wait a few minutes I don't mind because I know they will take their time with us. we never feel rushed. I feel like all our questions and concerns are answered. Dr. Cassidy is a gem!! She engages us in the care of my son's condition and educates every step of the way. My son has autism on top of his arthritis and Dr. Cassidy is great at knowing how to talk with him and knows his interests well. I thank God for her everyday and the way she has helped him. my son came to her at 13 weighing only 59 pounds and so stiff he could barely move. he's 16 now and 100# and tall and plays in the marching band. thank you!!!
