Loved working with Dr. Metcalf. He was my doctor since 1996 and he will be missed. I do wish him well in a much-deserved retirement.

I saw Dr. Metcalf twice due to being referred with a year or so between the visits. Each time I didn’t feel as if he was paying attention to exactly why I was referred because all he talked about was my obesity, as if I didn’t already know I was overweight. He is one of those doctors who will not attempt to rule out possible diagnoses but rather blame everything on your obesity. Complete waste of time. Luckily there are many other rheumatologists that you can be referred to now !!!!
