This was our first appointment with Dr Graham and our daughter has a rare genetic disorder which he took the time to learn more about BEFORE our appointment, but also asked us questions and used our knowledge of Phelan-McDermid Syndrome to form his diagnosis. It is always nice for a doctor to listen to the parents and let them say all they have to say and ask all they need to ask! THANK YOU!!!

Dr. Graham admitted my son to the hospital in order to do a series of tests to make a quick diagnosis and begin treatment.

I have been seeing Dr. Graham for quite some time now. When he first became my doctor, I was in such an awful state health wise. I could barely walk and had incredible trouble with my wrists, elbows, etc. Dr. Graham did everything he could to ensure that I have the best quality of life possible. We tried new medications, procedures, etc. Now, I'm in clinical remission, and you can barely tell that I have JRA. Not only that, Dr. Graham has become like apart of our family! He has the most amazing bedside manner and is truly concerned about me and my well-being. Dr. Graham is my inspiration for wanting to become a pediatric rheumatologist.

Dr. Graham is the ONLY reason we come to this office. I drive 3 hours one way for appointments. He is, in my opinion, the best pediatric rheumatologist there is. I have and will continue to highly recommend him to anyone in need of his medical expertise.
