Patient Comments (3)
Michigan |
I have had RA for 18 years. I have felt worse in the last two years since being a patient of Dr. Veldermans than I ever remember feeling. I find his physical assessment skills lacking, his knowledge of medications he prescribes lacking as well. He is unwilling to take responsibility for medications he prescribes and is quick to push any issue off on other providers. I would not recommend him.

Dr Velderman listens carefully and reaches a plan for your care with your input. I've had RA for 23 years and feel that these two years, with this doctor, I feel much more in control of my health. I highly recommend him.
