Dr. Behrendsen has respectful, concerned, welcoming chairside manner. Listens thoroughly and spends time each patient needs.

Just an all around amazing doctor. He listens, he knows his stuff, and he is just a nice guy. In my personal experience with him he properly diagnosed a former misdiagnosis of RA. By properly identifying the real problem he was able to start me on treatment that actually works. After 18 years of suffering daily excruciating pain because of him I can once again function as a normal member of society. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a Rheumatologist.

I would so like not to think this way, but this Dr. Behrendsen was not compassionate when diagnosing me with SLE. He never told me the stage I was in, never broke down my lab results, or anything. Just informed me that I had SLE, asked was this my real hair, offered my medication and told me to get online and order and read the book LUPUS. Wow! This disease can kill people and this is the communication style I get from the Rheumatologist that is to specialize in this painful illness.

Dr. Behrendsen is a caring doctor who is compassionate, listens and takes you seriously. He works hard at coming up with a treatment plan that works for you. I would highly recommend him.
