He is honest, straight forward, engaging, though many patients may not like this style of medicine, he is not going to let you treat yourself. Don't get me wrong ,he will take your subjective overview of your symptoms but believe me you will not be self treating. Haven said that if you seek a doctor that will implement that old bedside manner and combine it with new knowledge and technology ,He is your rheumatologist

He has always been very kind and talked plain english, so i could understand what he was saying., not the medical talk. the staff has always been pleasant. also, do not cancel unless it is absolutely necessary. it wall take a few months to reschedule, which means he is a great doctor

Likes to argue, does not provide answers to questions when asked. Patients are not allowed to finish their sentence before he cuts in and try's to finish it for the patient. Very poor listener, asked the dr to look at my feet today and he forgot I even asked him. I think that he should consider another line of work as this is not a good match to the combative approach of communication. Avoid this dr if you desire a partnership with your physician.

I had a first time visit with Dr. Valicek in which blood was drawn for testing. Dr. Valicek was pleasant and competent. Toq weeks after the visit I received a bill for the lab tests from LabCorp for almost $1,300 with large print saying BALANCE DUE NOW. I was shocked! Then I realized Dr. Valicek did not share my insurance information with LabCorp. I had to go online or call and give them my insurance info. Thankfully I ended up paying only $11 to LabCorp.
