Specialties

Dr. Murray Passo has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Excellent doctor

Dr Passo diagnosed me 30 years ago with JRA and was a wonderful doc. I highly recommend him to anyone who has a child needing rheumatological care. He taught me so much about JRA and encouraged me to learn as much as I could about my illness. I even took a chance and emailed him when my son was younger and having some complaints of pain. He took the time to reply and helped me to be less worried about the situation. If need be, I'd travel to him if my child needed him. Plus, he truly cares about his patients. I was pretty headstrong as a child (sometimes leaning toward bratty) but he was always kind, patient, and would even joke with me. Yet, if he caught me doing something rather dumb (such as trying to eat while dangling my head upside down off of a couch while my mom was out of the room) he did not hesitate to correct my behavior in a way much like a scared parent would with their own child. He always had a hug for me as well.

BEST Dr. EVER!

Dr. Passo diagnosed me with JRA when I was 4 months old and I'm now 38! I was his first patient at Riley in Indianapolis and I followed him to Cincinnati for years! At age 24 we had to have the conversation about getting an adult rheumatologist because I was beyond pediatric! He gave me a life I would not have had otherwise! I owe him a lot! He is so knowledgeable and caring!

The Best.

Came to "Doc" when I was 7 in Indianapolis. Followed him to Cincy. Early on we drove from Michigan WEEKLY for appointments with him. You will not find a finer doctor than him. I'm 37 and wouldn't hesitate to call, consult of take my child all the way to SC for him to treat her.

Five Stars

We met Dr. Passo when my son was 4 years old. We had been to 4 other doctors and not one of them had any clue what was wrong with my son. We were in Dr. Passo's presence for 15 minutes and I had an answer. He is the most loving, caring, funny doctor I have ever met!! I cried when he left Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center...you are missed GREATLY!!!! My son is almost 16 and doing great thanks to Dr. Passo and everything I learned from him!!!
