Dr. Keating has been my rheumatologist for the past six years, since I was diagnosed with lupus. He is an outstanding doctor who is quick to respond to questions (I use the MyScripps app and always get a fast response) and thorough in his examinations and assessments. He has been critical in keeping me in good health, not only physically, but mentally (lupus can be rough to deal with). He is a considerate listener and is always willing to go the extra mile on tests to ensure an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. He takes all issues seriously and has recommended other specialists at Scripps when I have needed them (e.g., nephrology, ophthalmology, etc.) I highly recommend him and his excellent staff!!
