in Findlay, OH |
I was diagnosed-by Dr. Gideon-with fibromyalgia in 2009 and chronic fatigue in 2013. He was in Findlay and I followed him when he moved his practice to Bluffton. He is fantastic. Sure you have to wait sometimes but it is because he takes time to listen and treat you. If you can tolerate the staff, he is worth going to. The nurse's are nice, just some of them behind the desk aren't the best at customer service.

I've been seeing Dr. Gideon for 5 years for the treatment of Myofacial / Fibromyalgia pain and arthritis in my neck. He takes his time to understand my condition and has a mix of homeopathy and medicine to treat it. He helps recommend nutritional ideas and self care to lessen my symptoms but also provides steroid injections to reduce pain. I highly recommend Dr. Gideon and his team.

Today I took my great aunt there to see Dr. Gideon. He is a really nice Dr. I've seen from a previous visit. But today we were a little late because of the road work going on our way to Bluffton from Carey. It wasn't 15 minutes late but a little after 10. And the receptionist told my aunt that we were 15 minutes late and that we could not be seen by the Dr. She just made us another appointment and closed the window on us. She was not willing to work with us or hear us out. It really upset me.

What a great doctor, he has helped me so much. I can't say enough good about him. Thank you so much.
