The most thorough and patient doctor I’ve ever been to. We were in his office for about 30 minutes, he patiently wanted to hear about my condition and symptoms. Then an additional 15 minutes in the examining room. I wish all doctors were like Dr. Fors

I've been searching for a good rheumatologist and Dr. Fors Nieves is great. Very warm and understanding, responsive, and open to my thoughts and suggestions about my health and disease treatment, taking what I have to say very seriously. Blood work also done on-site, which is super convenient.

I had a number of strange symptoms and had been seeing a few GP and specialists. Dr. Fors Nieves by far is the best person I've worked with in that I felt that he listened to my symptoms and understood how I was feeling - great bedside manner. He identified my Raynauds Syndrome right away and ordered a bunch of blood work. Thanks to the work up, we were able to identify what was causing my curious symptoms and start treatment. I have already recommended him to some of my friends!

The patient scheduled before me was 30 minutes late. When he walked in, he was seen even though it was my appointment time and as a consequence I had to wait 30 minutes past my appointment time. The doctor did not acknowledge his tardiness.

I thought Dr. Fors was a remarkably kind and understanding doctor. The symptoms I'm experiencing are new and worrisome for me. Dr. Fors spent 40 minutes in total with me asking me questions and doing a physical exam.I felt the blood work he ordered was pretty comprehensive, too. The receptionist and nurse doing the bloodwork were both very nice and attentive. I look forward to continuing to work with Dr. Fors to figure out what's going on.
