1 WORST DR EVER. Was referred to find out why I was swelling, and without looking at any of my medical records; I have MULTIPLE chronic pain diseases, including endometriosis, spinal issues, kidney and liver issues, hernias, have had multiple surgeries for these issues including a double spinal fusion that went wrong; and this hoax of a Dr looked at me, saw my tattoos and lilac hair, NEVER ONCE LOOKED AT ANY RECORDS, told me endometriosis doesn't exist, every woman has "cramps", I'm just making up my diagnosis, my spinal issues are fake, let's repeat, NEVER LOOKED AT A SINGLE RECORD OR IMAGING, told me my pain is imagined ALL because of past mental trauma, just tore me apart left to right. I left in tears. He's a judgemental sexist who doesn't need to be treating anyone. The worst dr I've ever in my life seen. DO NOT RECOMMEND, ESP IF YOU ARE A YOUNG PERSON TRYING TO FIX YOURSELF TO HAVE A BETTER LIFE. He is a hoax and a horrific "doctor" save yourself the time & money. 0 stars.

I was previously being treated by a different rheumatologist with no changes to my condition. Upon being seen by Dr Loveman, he did the most thorough assessment any doctor has ever done, and told me that it wasn’t that condition. It was in fact psoriatic arthritis, which was a completely different treatment. After starting treatment for that, I saw my flare ups decrease to the point of almost being gone completely. He’s very knowledgeable and efficient. I would recommend to anyone!

i have been seeing Dr. Loveman in Odessa, TX for the last 13 years. He always takes time to listen and checks all the joints to be sure that there is no swelling (RA) and ensures that i have orders for my routine labwork and current refills to last at the very least until the next visit. he is very knowledeable in his field

Loved him! Asked lots of questions and was thorough. I sure was scared going to this appt after reading other reviews but he was great. Don't expect a diagnosis if there is nothing really wrong, he is not going to make something up.

When This Dr. enters the room there is immediate tension. he barely speaks to you and sits down and gets on the computer and starts typing. He always tells me how I feel instead of me telling him how I feel. cuts me off so I cannot say what I would like to say. He is very grumpy and gets offended if you ask to many question. He has put me on meds that make me sick and refuses to change them. he said it is not the meds and go to my primary care physician about it. I'm done with this Dr.

He doesn't listen to you, his bedside manner is terrible. He tells me how i feel instead of me telling him how i feel. I have RA and moved to this area without checking reviews as there are not many Rheumatologist here. Dr. Loveman I feel has lost his caring and will to help his patients. I have seen him for 2 years . He just will not listen and will not let me finish a sentence. I should have found a different Dr. a long time ago. I will never go to this Dr. again. He needs to Retire!

On my first and only visit he walked in the room looked at me and told me my previous diagnoses was wrong. He admitted that i tested positive for the test that proves my condition but told me it wasn't my problem. he also went on insulting me and accusing me of having a traumatic child hood. Then he canceled all of my meds I was on for pain now I'm in pain looking for a new dr.

I moved from out of state, after having to wait 5 months for my first appointment the visit was terrible. He didn't look at ANY of my medical records that were transferred. He said that my previous diagnosis was wrong (no tests done) and got very defensive and rude when I asked questions about it. He pulled me off ALL my meds and when my conditions flaired up I couldn't get in and was told to wait until my next appointment, it was 3 months away. Never been treated so badly by a Dr before.
