As a diabetic who had a double heart attack, I was a medical train wreck before Dr. Back took me on four years ago. How do I feel about this doctor? I thank God for Dr. Back. He is professional, personable, always working to continue improving my health, and a wealth of knowledge for my issues. His dedication to providing excellent care clearly influences the actions of every member of his staff, so I know I am in a very good place.

Best doctor ever!! And, I have been to quite a lot in 25 years with Lupus! He is very compassionate and a fixer! You tell him a problem and he has the solution! BP problems cured in an instant. He knows his stuff. He really truly cares about his patients. He is so thorough and sits there to listen to every possible thing and finds the solution if one exists. There are not many doctors in the world like him any more. He truly wants to help and has the knowledge base and caring heart to do so!

I have never been to a physician who takes as much time with you as Dr. Back does. He is SO thorough and knowledgeable and explains everything to you in terms you can understand. He is not your typical "white coat" doctor. He is casual in his dress and demeanor, but very professional at the same time. Almost all my friends and family comes to him now. Our Physician Assistant, Steve Hamm and our Nurse Practioner, Sarah Ferrillo are also EXCELLENT. The staff is all very friendly, helpful and professional and make you feel like family. I would highly recommend Advanced Centers for Internal Medicine.

Dr Back is by far the best diabetes doctor we have had in the past 25 years. He listens and he is an expert on this disease. The best part is that he teaches the patient more about diabetes & how to keep it in check. Since finding him, we would not switch to any other doctor! Staff is great as well. If you are looking for the best, you need to see Dr Back.

Dr. Back listened to my problems that other specialists had treated me for unsuccessfully and prescribed some medications that had an immediate favorable impact on my health. I trust his medical knowledge and advice and wholeheartedly recommend him and his staff.

I highly commend Jerry Back for his contribution to the fields of lipidology and diebetology. He has managed my case over the past couple of years and has done an excellent job in improving my prospects of a longer life. He is extremely caring and understanding and takes the care of his patients very personally. I am extremely thankful and grateful to know him and to entrust him and his staff with my care.

My husband & I have been patients of Dr Back for the past 5 years & have ZERO reasons to complain.He is a straight shooter & expects his patients to follow his professionally delivered medical advice.I have never had such a compassionate Dr EVER or one who takes the time to explain your diagnosis & treatment plan. I’ve even had a random phone call regarding a possible diagnosis that he researched after an appointment on my behalf(that was positive) & it potentially saved my husbands vision. HERO

Outstanding staff and facility. My sole complaint is that when I get a text message to confirm an appointment, the web page I'm taken to doesn't load.

I would and have recommended Dr Back to more than several friends and family members. Dr Back seems to me, to be a "fixer". If you tell him of a problem, he immediately gives orders or explains what needs to be done and before he leaves the room, arrangements have been made to address that problem. It's NONE of that wait and see stuff or you call and .... he has his office call and do all that BEFORE you leave! I love that. Nothing left to chance. Make an appointment, you won't be sorry!

Dr. Back is and has been a very important part of our health care. He is very easy to talk to and explains carefully and thoughtfully the answers to our questions. He responded immediately to an unscheduled emergency event that my husband had following recent surgery, smoothing his admit to the hospital and helping him to receive the care he needed. We are very grateful he is a member of our health care team!!

Has helped me manage my diabetes with ease. As long as you listen to what he says and DO IT you will be in good shape. Best doctor I could ever ask for. Turly cares about ever single patient. If he had more staff he would be able to help a lot more people.

Dr. Back and his team are exceptional health care providers. They go above and beyond in their clinical excellence. This is by far the best medical team I have had across the country. They are both caring and cutting edge in their approach. I even talked my husband into transferring to this practice.

I have been going to Dr. Back for a little over a year and have not had a bad experience yet. The wait time is always minimal and the care is exceptional. He takes whatever time is needed to find out what your problems are and what is the best course of action. He listens to all questions and explains in a way you can understand. I would recommend him to anyone. Just wish I had found him sooner.
