What our patients are saying...
"I am so happy I was referred to Empowered Arthritis. Dr. Gupta is fantastic! He spent a lot of time asking questions and listening to me describe my symptoms. Fibromyalgia is not always taken seriously, but Dr. Gupta takes it very seriously and was thoughtful, kind, and gave me a plethora of good information and strategies to help with my pain and fatigue. I was so relieved to have a name for my condition so that I can take the steps needed to get relief. Dr. Gupta and his staff and nurse were patient and kind. I can't recommend them enough!"
"Dr. Subedi is the doctor I have been searching for for 11 years. It is clear he stays up to date on the latest research and is an excellent patient educator, explaining what's happening within my body in terms I can understand. Also, Dr. Subedi really listens, asks thoughtful questions, and cares about the doctor/patient relationship. This combination in a specialist is hard to find, and I feel like I have struck gold.
"I have seen countless specialists at UNC, and although they are a great institution, my experience at Empowered Arthritis and Rheumatology Center far exceeds any care I have received at UNC.
"Another great plus is that the front desk staff is extremely friendly and thorough. I highly recommend this practice to anyone looking for a rheumatologist."
"The front office is personable and friendly and the lobby is relaxing. Dr. Subedi thoughtfully reviewed my notes and symptoms, reviewed our options, thought of how my other conditions affect each other, AND left plenty of time to consider my thoughts, which is a refreshing change! My mom says this place is “mom approved!” and likes the treatment philosophy. It’s an aptly named practice - I left feeling empowered about my care."
"Dr. Gupta is an amazing doctor. I followed him for my mom’s ongoing issue. Dr Gupta not only takes time to educate about everything but is also very patience with her. He thoroughly review his medication as well. We are very pleased with the his care and recommend everyone. His location is very convenient and supporting staff are amazing. Thank you for serving the community."
