I wish I could give Dr. Abubaker ZERO stars. I saw him this summer because I was suffering from chronic pain. He wrongly diagnosed me with Fibro and said to come back in three months. When I came back, I was still suffering from chronic pain. I asked if we should do some preliminary blood tests, he said no even though I had never been tested. I became more sick and finally went to a primary care doctor in November. She was very concerned, did several blood tests and found I tested positive for Rheumatoid Factor and Anti-cyclic Citrullinated Peptide (anti-CCP) Antibodies. She referred me to a new rheumatologist who diagnosed me with Rheumatoid Arthritis and started me on appropriate medication immediately. Early treatment is very important in RA. Unfortunately, Dr. Abubaker prolonged my suffering and completely misdiagnosed me.
