I saw Dr. Payne for the first time this week. I was very pleased with his explanation of things to me, and his unrushed demeanor. He was interested in hearing my perspective on my symptoms and my pain. He is very good at explaining things about conditions and medications.

Wonderful doctor! i would highly recommend him.
in Shelby, NC |
I highly recommend seeing Dr. Payne. He is very affirming of my experiences and allows me to take an active role in my treatment. He takes his time to be sure all of my questions are answered and treats me with the upmost respect. His bedside manner is calm and reassuring. I have seen other rheumatologists before and Dr Payne is by far the best. I travel over an hour to see him and it is worth every minute of the trip.
