What People Say About Dr. Rebekah Neal-Kraal, MD

Based on my experience, I will not have my 2 family members see Dr. Rebekah Neal again. First,I want to qualify by saying that I like Dr. Neal a lot, she is knowledgeable and personable. My problem is with the office personnel. I have family members who are patients of Dr. Neal, I have seen and spoken to this same woman many times so I know what I am saying when I say she is rude, cold, short and unsympathetic. This is not how to treat patients or potential patients. In addition, even after I said I'm in pain, I was told their next opening is not until end of November! To make matters worse, this woman was telling me I need a referral! ? I do not require a referral because my insurance allows me to see any doctor of any specialty I want with out a referral! This person hung up on me. I called back to speak with the office mgr. She tells me they do not want to see me as a patient. It wasn't worth me explaining my side. I was not allowed to speak or leave a msg for Rebekah.

Dr. Rebekah Neal is totally unprofessional. I was referred to her by my physician and wasnt impressed by her at all. She lacked empathy and felt like she was rushing me. Worst part was that she complained about me to the referring doctor about the dispute I had regarding missed appointment with her office staff. What kind of doctor talks bad stuff about their patients behind their back. She should be glad that I didn't complain to medical board about her behavior. I am never going back to this doctor again.

She started of as a great doctor very caring and genuinely amazing, but as the visit progressed her office got more and more difficult to work with I went days to weeks without getting authorization for my prescriptions and every visit felt like she cared less and less about my concerns and the questions I had.

Dr. Neal is an excellent listener. She guided me through the options and helped me decide on the best treatment for my R.A. She is kind and gentle, and puts me at ease. When I was unwilling to use one of the treatments, she found another that fit my needs. She prescribed a treatment that is working successfully on my R.A. and she continues to monitor and advise me on a regular basis. She is honest about letting me know what to expect as I age and encourages me stay positive about the future.

As someone with multiple family members with rheumatic diseases, I have seen firsthand the toll they can take on the person and on their family.  This drove me to wanting to help others with the same diseases and into the field of rheumatology. ...
