What People Say About Dr. Jeffrey Loomer, MD

I have struggled with osto-arthritis in my hands since I was 45 years old. I have had surgery on one finger & thumb which was not good. Now at 70 it is acting up and at my first appt we changed the medication, with no positive results. Then on the second appointment we changed the medication to Celbrox and there has been a significant improvement. Dr Loomer has a warm and caring personality. His assistant Natalie is very knowledgeable and is kind and caring, too. The office staff members are very nice and explain everything. It is nice to have so many other services there. I recommend Dr Loomer??????????????

I had seen several Physicians and never received a diagnosis until I saw Dr. Loomer. He took the time to go over my entire life history from birth up to the day of my appointment. He did a numerous amount of blood work and finally I was given a diagnosis. Dr. Loomer is a Physician who cares about his patients and I recommend him to anyone that is in need of his specialty.

Dr. Loomer is a wonderful doctor, kind, respectful, knowledgeable, excellent listener, has a great sense of humor, easy to relate to, and very pleasant. I would highly recommend him for your doctor. He is mine and I'm very pleased. When I had an unusual reaction to a shot, he went up and beyond to get me to another specialist who treated me.

Dr Loomer is very personable and does not rush you out of his office.. He asks you how you are feeling and other topics that he takes notes about (e.g. my eldest daughter's breast cancer. My erosive arthritis is controlled since I have seen him for the past 2 years.

I see Dr. Loomer for 4+ years. From the very beginning I have been impressed with his experience, compassion, and bedside manner. He makes you feel like he really cares about what is going on with you. He asks pertinent questions and then he actually listens to my answers. His staff is also very courteous, professional, friendly, and thorough! I highly recommend him.

Dr. Loomer and his staff are outstanding!!! I am dealing with a significant medical issue and thanks to Dr. Loomer I am beginning to see relief. I was at the point of considering going on disability leave from my company due to the severity of my condition. While not 100% better, I am very close. He has been a tremendous resource, will take the time to understand your issue, develop a treatment approach and follow-thru to make sure you are progressing. He takes the time to explain things which I find very helpful. Highest Recommendations to Dr. Loomer and his staff. Couldn't be more pleased with the care and relationship.

Dr Loomer has been excellent. I have been seeing him for 3 years now a days have been thoroughly impressed. He has always been a wealth of information and thorough in his exams. He has always included my spouse in the visits which is very important to us as my spouse being my primary care taker has unique insights into how I'm doing.

I have been seeing Dr. Loomer for about 1 1/2 years and couldn't be more pleased! He exhibits the qualities I value most in my doctors: 1) He has encyclopedic knowledge and experience related to my condition and shares that knowledge and information with me as issues arise. 2) He actively listens and "hears" my concerns (and better yet he takes action on them before I leave his office). 3) He does those little "extras"; like appealing insurance company denials and WINNING; giving me a temporary prescription until I can get in to see a specialist for an unrelated health issue; taking the time to read and interpret blood test results ordered (but not explained) by other providers. Dr. Loomer is the whole package rolled into 1! (Would that all of my doctors had these same qualities)! I wholeheartedly endorse and recommend Dr. Loomer to everyone!

Dr. Loomer is an excellent rheumatologist. He always takes time to listen to any issues I’m having and discuss my treatment options. He’s caring and very knowledgeable and always takes time to discuss any changes in my life that may affect my RA. I highly recommend Dr. Loomer to anyone who is looking for a rheumatologist.

Dr. Loomer was recommended by my primary care doctor and was a Godsend. He diagnosed my condition immediately and within weeks I recovered use of my hands and the swelling was gone. The discomfort I felt in various parts of my body, including pain in the knees and inability to get up from a seat in aided, has gone. I am high strung and I really appreciated his gentle manner and especially his willingness to listen to this 75 year old and respect my opinions and requests.

I have had the distinct pleasure to see Dr. Loomer five or six times. As a retired doctor, I appreciate his punctuality, care, skill, judgment, bedside manner, breadth of clinical knowledge, and genuinely authentic personality. I always felt like I was the most important person and never felt rushed. Separately his educational credentials are impeccable.

When I was in a fibromyalgia flare, Dr. Loomer prescribed Prednisone. While this was the correct medication, I feel strongly that Dr. Loomer did not fully consider the mental health ramifications of this prescription. I experienced an extreme side effect that caused me to incur myriad medical bills. Following this horrifying experience that nearly cost me my life, AARA still sees fit to charge me for Dr. Loomer's extremely brief time with me. Business is business, so I will pay.

I was referred to Dr. Loomer by my primary care physician. He is kind, compassionate and listens. He allows you, the patient, to be involved in the decision making. Office staff are cheerful and helpful. Thank you Dr. Loomer for making a new diagnosis of Lupus less frightening and explaining the disease process clearly.
