Dr. Ajam is the second rheumatologist I have seen. He is always open to my questions and treats me with respect. He answers any questions I might have with clear answers.

All was great.

As he entered the room, Dr Ajam congratulated me on losing a few pounds since my last OSU Dr's appointment. While he reviewed my symptoms and examined my joints, he fluently drew me into a discussion of healthy habits such as exercising, dietary choices, dental care and complemented me on my use of sunscreen, confirming that zinc oxide containing products are top choices. IMHO, he treats me like a person, not an illness.

In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
