My rheumatologist,Dr. Eric Beger is a very knowledgeable doctor who gives a lot of time to his patients.He is very thorough in making his diagnosis & trying to get to the root of the problem & help alleviate the problem or at least treat it the best way possible. He is also very prompt. There is very little waiting time for him. He has an excellent nursing,lab & office staff. He is a very caring doctor who I feel very comfortable with. So for all these reasons I give him the highest rating.

My 1st appt gave me hope that I would find a resolution to my pain issues. All over body pain during that appt we talked about running test and then if all was well coming up with a plan to treat Fibromyalgia I went back to him 3 weeks later and I feel like I was lost in the cracks of his practice. I was having a pretty bad day pain wise but no mention of Fibro, a treatment plan, nothing he basically told me to go back to Primary. He was my last hope.
