Dr. Linda Belhorn is very thorough, experienced, kind, knowledgeable, concerned and responsive. She asked very detailed questions and I felt that she truly understood and could treat my problems. I was very pleased with every aspect of my visit! My insurance has denied the one medication that has helped me for 21 years and she even offered to dispute this with the insurance company! I highly recommend Dr. Belhorn and this practice!

I have been seeing Dr Bellhorn since October 2020. Every visit she takes the time to review my chart prior to my visit which is very apparent as not all providers do that. I appreciate the time she takes to listen to my concerns and she is always ensuring I receive the best treatment. I actually feel cared for by the office staff. I can’t say enough only that their care shows and I feel blessed to have them.

Dr. Belhorn has an excellent bedside manner (gentle and compassionate) and stays current with research in her field. Her patients benefit from her commitment to evidence based medicine, as well as her empathic nature. I suffered severe pain for several years before receiving the correct diagnosis from Dr. Belhorn. Under her care, I'm relieved to have recovered a good deal of the function I'd lost. My disease process is well controlled and I especially appreciate her willingness to talk through my questions and concerns. I appreciate that she is open-minded, and the degree to which she allows me to participate in decisions regarding my plan of care. You can always count on her to respond quickly to any concerns you may have between appointments. Although her area of expertise is quite specialized, she cares for not just the disease of her speciality, but for you as a whole person.

I have been seeing Dr. Belhorn for many years now and have never know any doctor who is more thorough, more efficient or who listens more intently than she does. Both my husband and I are satisfied in knowing that I am able to keep going each day and have the best life I can due to the in-depth knowledge of my condition and her persistent care for me. She gets our highest commendation for her consistency and practice standards .

I have been seeing Dr.Belhorn for 9! Years. In my opinion she is the best doctor I have ever experienced. She is very genuinely concerned about you as a whole person as well as your illness she is treating. She is very knowledgeable in the field of rheumatology and systemic lupus as well as connective tissue disease. She listens to you and respects her patients input in their care. She does not force you into treatment regimens with which you are uncomfortable. I was so blessed to find her. She was a true God send. Thank you Dr. Belhorn for your commitment to your patients. A lot of Doctors could learn much from her. Best doctor ever hands down.
