My health condition requires following quarterly. Look forward to these visits to ensure a continuous history, to ask questions, to learn, to review medications, and to make adjustments as warranted.

I have been a patient for nearly five years. Took awhile to find a doc that had the skills and background to administer to my needs. Consistently stays on top of his field. He has been a great fit for me and should be an excellent choice for a PCP for anyone.

Enjoyed meeting with Dr. Back as a new patient and how much time he spends getting to know you and understand your concerns and background. I’m just disappointed with the problems I’ve had with getting my prescriptions sent in when they say they will.

Dr. Back is a wonderful doctor. He actually takes the time to listen. He is very knowledgeable and willing to use different approaches, knowing what is good for one person may not be what is best for another. I trust his advice and opinions completely!

I have been seeing Dr Back for several years now and have always found him to be extremely attentive to all my questions and concerns. Most doctors listen but don't hear what you are saying. Proud to know him ??

I recently relocated to Summerville & had my 1st meeting with Dr. Jerry Back after having the same internist in Anderson, SC for 20 years. I wanted an internist rather than a family care doctor due to their higher level of education/training & more specialization. First, Dr. Back took the time to actually review my medical records which I brought with me, something which many physicians would not have done. He actually listened to my explanations of past & present medical conditions & symptoms. He was extremely knowledgeable, and he was very professional in his approach. He showed interest in me as a person, and I left my 1st meeting with him feeling he truly had my best health interests at heart. He was thorough in his evaluations of my medical conditions and straight forward in his suggestions of what must be done to correct those conditions. Detailed explanations were given & answers provided to all my questions. I highly recommend Dr. Back as primary care internist.

I have been a patient of Dr. Back for several years and have always been pleased with the attention to detail for my health. Dr. Back is friendly, intelligent and very careful and caring of his advice for my health care. In today's time that appears to be a real problem with doctors. I highly recommend him.

The whole office is a great place to go. They take great care of providing an excellent experience. You can expect a very thorough exam where they test your blood levels for A1C and go from there. Everyone is very personable and sincere, from your comfort to your questions, they make sure everything is answered to your satisfaction.

I'm a transplant from the northeast. Dr. Back was referred to me by my primary care physician and I could not have been more impressed with his knowledge and the amount of time he gave me to answer each and every question I had. Due to the type of work I was in, I saw a lot of physicians and Dr. Back is clearly one of the most caring physicians I've had the pleasure to meet. If you are looking for someone who will champion your issues, you've found the right guy..
