I asked Dr. Mileti if she is taking on new patients, and she said that she is not doing that as she has cut her hours and does not have time for all the patients she has. Obviously, there are too few rheumatologists !

Reviewed on Nov 2, 2022

Dr. Linda Mileti is absolutely outstanding. She conveyed both thorough expertise and sincere care for me as a patient. It can sometimes be hard to find this combination in a physician.

She treated me in a way that gave me confidence about her diagnosis and plan of care and made me feel welcome as a patient. She is fantastic!
