Summerville, SC |
Always helpful, always direct. A very informed doctor and someone I fully trust.
in Belfair, WA |
Dr Back was my mothers doctor in the final stages of her terminal illness.My wife attended an appointment with her one day and came home saying we were changing doctors. Dr back had gotten off his stool and walked over to my mom, after telling her there wasn't anything else to be done for her, kissed her forehead and said "I love ya Mare" (Mary was her name).My wife was deeply touched and we changed practices as soon as he had an opening. We feel like we are going to see our friend who is our Dr

Dr. Jerry Back is personable with his patience. From the first time I met him, he acted like he had known me for a long time., I was no stranger to him. He has great interaction with his patience. He does have a warm personality. Thus far I am very impressed with him. 9/30/2016

I went to Dr. Back with my mother several years back. I saw the attention to detail and care that he provided her. He ended up saving her life, because her previous doctor had her on all the wrong medicine. Naturally when my own blood pressure went up and my potassium bottomed out, he was the first one I called to make an appointment. He now has my blood pressure under control, cholesterol is perfect, as well as many other potential problems I would have run into had I not gone to see him.

He truly listens the concerns and problems of the patient. He finds the best solutions to fit the patient needs that are affordable and will give the best results. As a healthcare professional myself, I feel that Dr. Back offers the best care for me and my family and I have referred any/all of my friends who have chronic diseases such as high blood pressure, cholesterol issues and/or diabetes. He uses the best medicines whether old or new and find resources to help patients in anyway possible.

Dr. Back was the first physician I've seen that really took their time with me. He got to know me and really cares about me and my well being. Thank you Dr. Back for treating me as a person and not a number.

Dr. Back cares about all his patients. If your health is in poor condition he takes that as a reflection of how he as doing as a doctor. You can tell he truly cares about each person that walks in his door. My A1C has never been better since going to him.

I like him personally. If I didn't I couldn't use his services. As my Primary Care Physician, he understands my problems, listens, and is a direct no nonsense professional. If you want to be coddled, he may not be the right choice? The staff are very kind, and helpful. Overall a good experience for me!
