Over the years, I have seen many rheumatologists. Dr O'Rourke is by far the best!! He is always kind courteous,very knowledgeable about my condition and takes all the time I need. He answers all my questions in a way that I can understand what he is saying. He is never in a hurry which means a lot to me.
Great care was provided.
I have an extreme amount of trust in Dr. O'Rourke. His staff is always pleasant and professional.
