Dr. Keroack has come through for me time and time again. He has taken care of me better then my Primary care...have no idea where I would be today if not for him. He is smart and so knowledgeable and I am blessed to have him as my Dr. My old primary care who went further up in his practice... had told me I needed to see a rheumatologist and he could get me in soon to see one. Thing is, he wanted me to wait 3 months so I could see this Dr. in particular. He is worth the wait and then some.

He listens more carefully to symptoms that others had dismissed as "nerve pain" and was able to diagnose life threatening illness and treat him immediately and effectively and has carefully led his follow-up care for years to prevent a reoccurrence. He is a forceful advocate for for his patients when coordinating with other doctors and specialists often commanding the conversation with his careful well spoken advice and treatment plans that have greatly increased quality of life.

Felt like I was being given a presentation on Fibromyalgia. He came in with the brochure before even speaking to me. Told me to work on educating myself on the disease, exercise more, and come to peace with my condition. Said not to bother seeing any other Drs because he's the expert and no one else can help me. Did not offer treatments or any guidance on what to do next. I cried my eyes out in his office because now I don't know what to do and he did not help me.

A total waste of time and money. Useless visit, no treatment plan, limited awareness of rare diseases and lacking an human compassion.

I think it's easy to tell when a physician chooses medicine for the right reason and Dr Keroack is the best example of someone who wants to help through medicine and care. No one is kinder or more thorough. About six years ago, I went in weepy, in debilitating pain, and crippled .. . . I could barely feed myself . . . land within 4 months I was back on the walking trails, the tennis court and golf course enjoying a very active life. Great guy. Great practice. Great healer.

I have been seeing Dr Keroack for about 7 months. I have had 3 other rheumatologists over the years. My experience at Dr Keroack's office have been very positive. Initially it was difficult to get an appointment but once in I have received excellent attention when I have had any issues with my condition. Bottom line, the longer I have been under his care the better I feel.
