Truly the best internist/rheumatologist ever. Very attentive to the whole patient, not just the bones. My mother has many health problems, and if it were not for him, she would not be with us today.

I first met Dr. Trostle in the early 1990s. I had pain for many years and people(family and doctors) told me, it's all in your head..Dr. Trostle listened to me did not judge me and treated the symptoms. Dr. Trostle is very thorough in his search for answers through blood work and x-rays. I started a drug that is for lupus and it was a life saver for me. For the first time in years I was almost pain free, enough to get me back to work. I still travel over 70 miles to see him. Wonderful doctor

I love Dr. Trostle. His bedside manner is very professional. He listens intently to problems you are having, he studies your labwork for any problems and monitors you medication. Is very aware of pain levels and works with you to get them under control. I have been seeing him for 14 years and would not like to have to change doctors.
