This was my first visit to Dr. Jaimu Tudor, MD, with the Arthritis and Rheumatism Institute. My appointment was for 10:30am with a 10:00am show up time for new patient paperwork. I arrived a few minutes early. Most of the patients in and out of the office seemed much older than I am, maybe in their 70s (I'm 55). The staff handed me the paperwork right at 10:00am. While I filled out paperwork, I listened to the receptionists take several phone calls, all from patients who wanted to either cancel appointments at the last minute or make an appointment for the same or next day. The receptionist did her best to accommodate each one. I was called to the back at 10:25am. I was weighed and vitals were taken, and the nurse said the doctor would be with me in a few minutes, but seconds later he walked through the door. I had given the girl taking vitals a two-page list of medications and outline of my medical history. Most doctors are immediately set off by my long list of reactions to most medicines. Dr. Tudor came in and went over every little detail on my sheets and every little arthritis pain complaint I had. He spent a full 20 minutes with me, which I found unusual because most doctors set aside only 10-15 minutes per patient. He prescribed medications under my written guidelines for back pain and inflammation. He was so pleasant and sweet. I'm always nervous with first time appointments, but he put so at ease. I had bllod drawn and the technician was smooth with the needle and pleasant to chat with. It was nice to get blood drawn on the premises instead of sitting at Quest for hours. I am very happy with Dr. Tudor and his staff. He does not overbook. He takes time with his patients, listens and addresses their complaints and pains, and made me feel very comfortable and happy about the visit.
