Most of these medicines give good results when taken under guidance of a rheumatologist. Frequent blood monitoring is required with some of these medicines.

Possibly the best experience I had with a doctor in Mumbai
1. Doctor spends enough time with the patient (30+ minutes for me). I think this is the most important part of any doctor's appointment.
2. Very knowledgeable, pays great attention to detail when it comes to diagnosis
3. Hears the patient out, every minor worry and concern
4. Explains everything to the patient, instead of just prescribing what to do. This is great, because it creates a great sense of transparency. Also it helps the patient understand scientifically what exactly is happening, which is important for treatment
Visited Dr. Shinde today with my mom. Mom has been an arthritis patient for a long time. He is very patient, gives a proper hear to all the concerns raised by the patient. He has prescribed a set of medicines and tests. Let's see how that goes. Follow up visit after few weeks.
Dr.Shinde is realy friendliness.His treatment is realy very good he think about patient's future and tries to reduce medicine of which the patient is addicted and made the patient to avoid unnecessary drugs which harm patient in future. I have experience that he prescribe generic medicine which reduce the burden of cost. However regarding his fees which is very reasonable. It is found that he is follower of Ethics of medical profession.Because of him I am maintaining good health.Thanks.
Dr. Sushan Shinde listen my health problem patently including my life stile , He explained me cause and effect of the disease . What to do what not to do with menu for daily diet . He advise me to do exercise regularly with health diet and taking medicines.
In stead of taking medicine as a food he advised to eat fruits and other healthy foods as a medicine as I explained him I don't like to take medicine .Without any diagnosis he has prescribed only 2 tablets . others are after getting test reports .
He advised how to maintain your life style accordance to age is the best thing I liked .
Less medicine cost and natural way of recovery is the very helpful to middle class income group like me .
I wish he maintain this spirit in his career and help poor people to recover from the common diabetics in a lower medical bill and live longer healthy life. Best part is doctor listen my all words with full concentration .
We pray God to help him to help the society.
I met Dr.Sushant few days back. He made me feel comfortable. He was patient enough to hear all my concerns regarding multiple joint pain and others too.He explained everything in detail and addressed all issues one by one giving due time. explained the course of treatment. very professional and imminent doctor.
I had gone to Dr Shinde for a second opinion. He heard my side patiently without interrupting, followed by examination of the joints. A very good experience with the doctor as he puts the patient at ease and listens to the problem completely. Will visit again after 10 days as I am confident that I will make a complete recovery under his care.

5. Values his and patients' time
6. Patiently listens and guide/refer for other ailments as well that might be pestering patients
One of my relative recommended about the doctor & after doing ayurvedic treatment we didn't get an positive response & after coming to rheumderma clinic we got good experience & proper medication which was helpful for the betterment of health. Hoping for best result & good health. We would like to recommend about rheumderma clinic to our family & friends suffering from this kind of health issues.☺
Doctor spent enough time understanding the history of the ailment, made me understand the cause and way forward In a very simple way to develop my understanding about the problems
Recommended the prescribed medicines and blood tests to take the investigation further
Over all it was a very good experience visiting Dr Shinde
Hello Doc! I heard you talking on radio about a disorder that makes a person feel not to do work at all, which leads to many family- relation problems, misunderstanding about disorder. Can you tell me more in detail more about the disorder?
