Do not waste your time with this doctor. I was misdiagnosed by this doctor after being under his care for a year. Got a second opinion and had Lupus diagnosis from another doctor after this doctor told me I only had fibromyalgia!? I actually had organ involvement Lupus with my blood work and urine never being checked. He jeopardized my health being under his care. I would recommend Ok Medical Research Foundation in OKC if have symptoms of Lupus.

please do not waste your time going to see this dr. I received my labs in the mail after not hearing from him for 3 weeks I called to inquire about my abnormal labs. the nurse returned my call only to tell me these abnormal labs happen sometime and not to be concerned. during my visit with DR.SURBECK each time I was asked a question before I could answer he would say let me finish my assessment. MY FIRST VISIT WITH A RHEUMATOLOGIST, totally disappointed as now I will need to find a new one .

This Dr was rude and dismissive of my concerns. He would not listen to my explanation of my symptoms and issues I have been dealing with. He didn’t look over my file or medical history and was eager to get me out of the exam room as quick as possible. Simply took my copay and ordered tests and procedures that have already been completed recently. Probably the worst friendly Dr / Patient exchange I have ever experienced.

My Rheumatologist retired and Dr. Surbeck is my new doctor. I have only seen him twice so far and I am very pleased and happy to be his patient. He is very nice, polite and extremely smart. I dreaded changing doctors after 24 years but I am happy to say it was a good choice. His staff is very courteous as well.
