I’ve been seeing Dr. Troum for several years. He was able to accurately diagnose and treat an autoimmune disorder I have. He’s knowledgeable, patient, thorough and I never feel rushed like I do by other doctors. I think ver highly of him and feel fortunate to have found him.

I would give Dr. Troum a million stars if I could! I've been told I have connective tissue disease, and Lupus, by two other Practitioners. Dr. Troum thoroughly went over my medical history and labs with me; in a way that I could understand. I just found out yesterday I have NO autoimmune disease...that news is life changing! Years, I've searched for answers! I'm not saying you will be cured...but, you will definitely be heard. There are not a lot of wonderful humans like him here on Earth. I'm forever grateful that I found him.?? Mandy RN from Central California

I had a Zoom appointment during Covid-19 with the fantastic Dr. Troum. It was excellent. I had a very specific question I wanted his opinion about. He listens. He's respectful. Besides being highly knowledgeable, his communication skills are exceptional (e.g. he decodes medical terminology and makes sure I have understood) AND he has a great sense of humor. I can't recommend him highly enough. And his office staff is wonderful.

Dr. Troum really listens to patient concerns and is extremely thorough in his analysis and diagnosis. His office manner shows a true desire to eliminate my pain. I am fortunate to have found him after several other rheumatologists dismissed my symptoms and overlooked blood test markers. Dr. Troum has been treating me now for nearly four years. Thanks to his care, my autoimmune arthritis condition has improved dramatically. His staff is responsive when a consult is needed in between appointments.
