What People Say About Dr. Stephen Lindsey, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
For months I suffered excruciating pain with every movement. I couldn't even roll over in bed w/o crying in pain. Another local rheumatologist, who will remain nameless, did nothing but prescribe anti-inflammatories. Dr. Lindsay diagnosed me on my first visit with polymyalgia rheumatica, which was unusual for someone my age (41). After a steroid shot and starting prednisone (which is the only treatment), my condition improved dramatically & eventually it resolved completely. He treated me for 2 yrs until I moved to Huntsville, AL. I am an RN and I highly recommend him. He's a great person and excellent, caring physician.

I've seen Dr. Lindsey since 2009, after being diagnosed with a rare disease. I was so sick that no one knew whether or not I would improve. Without his support during this time, I'm not sure what may have happened. I continue to see him every 3 months, and I can always count on him to patiently listen and offer excellent advice.
