I went to Dr. Bronson with a diagnosis of RA and needed a confirmation. He was condescending and dismissive of the pain I was having. His treatment plan - shoe inserts. He wanted me to pay for office visits for a year before he would confirm my diagnosis. I had never left a doctor's office crying before. I have now.

I have been going to Dr. Bronson since my diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis in 1996. He has always been kind, caring, and knowledgeable, always explaining why he recommends certain medications. If I have a flare-up, I can always get immediate treatment. I have had a second opinion by a respected dr in KC, who told me dr Bronson was doing just what he would do.

The first time I saw him he did not understand my pain and did not help with it so I told him he needed to find another job. I made a 1 yr follow up with him thinking it was a different Dr that I respected. He spent the time, not asking about my pain, but kept repeating himself about why I told him to find another job. I stood up and said I was sorry I thought I had made the appointment with a different Dr. He said good luck. Good luck? I needed a caring Dr who knows about pain not this joker.

I visited with Dr Bronson. He spoke to me as a person, and explained what he was going to do and what he was looking for. He ran blood test and explained that he was ruling out certain ailments that I was having so that he can find the correct one. In my opinion he is a great doctor and I have already recommend him to friends.
