I absolutely adore this doctor . I have been in pain for years. Our first visit he told me he was going to run some tests . He suspected sjogrens. (I had never heard of this ) but sure enough. I have sjogrens syndrome. Now I have an answer for what's causing my pain . And a doctor , who is very kind and excellent at what he does . I can't thank him enough . I don't feel like I'm losing my mind any more. I actually enjoy going to my apartments . And learning all I can from this exceptional man

I have moderate/severe RA and he has been my doctor since I was 18 yrs old. When he left Backus, I left with him. He is very knowledgeable and actually works with you to find the treatment plan that works best for YOU. When I was pregnant, then breastfeeding he took the time to listen to my concerns and worked with me to manage my RA through that process. Best doctor I've ever had for RA, very thorough and I would highly recommend him to anyone especially people who are newly diagnosed.
