    Dr. Ajam was excellent. I just moved back to Ohio and he is replacing my previous rheumatologist (treated me for over 25 years). Dr. Ajam was courteous, professional and extremely knowledgeable about my disease/syndromes and conditions. He inspired confidence in receiving my care from him.

    Dr. Ajam is always attentive, friendly, and professional! He answers my questions and is helpful knowing I can't take NSAIDS - finding other ways to help me!

    Dr. Ajam was excellent as always. He always listens intently and shares information in an accessible, empathetic manner. He personally called me a few days after my visit to check in with me and see how I was doing. Can't say enough good things about his care & expertise.

    Always informed, upbeat and helpful concerning my disease. Positivity in the doctor's office makes dealing with a chronic illness easier.

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.
