What People Say About Dr. Rebecca Belsom, MD

I was very disappointed in my encounter with Rebecca Belsom. This woman is unprofessional, and doesn't appear to be very interested in helping people. Based upon a very brief examination which involved listening to my heart and poking on a few areas of my body, along with no blood tests, decided, that my previous Rheumatologist who has been practicing for nearly 30 years and teaches in medical schools gave my the wrong diagnoses. Doctor Belsom told me that I did not have the disease.

Did not even review my medical history and years of complaints and treatments I had already received. A lupus diagnosis is difficult yet years of records would probably help with that. I was completely dismissed and now back to square one - did not even tell me where to go or what to do, just left me hanging. I waited months to get in and now completely stuck and my insurance will start over again when I had already met my deductible and everything. Very poor service.
