It was a six month follow up. Dr Surbeck is very patient and listens intently to what you report to him. He’s very thorough and has an excellent “bedside” manor

NO SECOND OPINIONS
I started seeing Dr Surbeck in fall 2019 due to having excruciating all over body pain since 2016 and years back. My last visit with Surbeck in the fall of 2021 was a down fall and devastating said their was nothing else to do but take meds and deal with pain,I begged for a shot anything to relieve the pain I was having even if it lasted a day! I then saw my primary 10/21 he wanted a 2nd opinion due to my pain levels.(I refused pain doctors due to I do not want to be addicted to pain meds) In Feb 2021 I saw a Massay due to me NOT having rheumatoid arthritis their was nothing he could do for me that I needed to return to Dr Surbeck. After scheduling an appt for Aug. 8th, 2022 my appt has been Canceled with Dr Surbeck I will no longer be able to be a patient due to my 2nd opinion! It has not even been a year lapse until Oct. 2022 since my last visit. I think the money is more important than the patient now a days and one more thing Ashley his nurse is very, very rude and hateful!!!!

Dr. Surbeck: Caring, Concerned & Highly Competent
Dr. Surbeck’s knowledge, experience and skill in the complicated field of rheumatology is exceptional. He possesses great judgment and wisdom using tests results and clinical assessment to determine an accurate diagnosis & treatment plan. Until my recent RA diagnosis, I have been medically low maintenance. Therefore, I’m just learning to navigate these medical waters. Dr. Surbeck’s humble & approachable demeanor put me at ease & that makes it easy to ask any question. He is an active listener & responds with reasonable & practical advice. I know not what the future holds but I am grateful to be under the care of such a competent and caring physician!

Dr. Surbeck is an incredible provider and person. He was on-time to my appointment, which has not been something I've experienced with most providers I've seen in the past. He was attentive, listened and seemed truly interested in what I was telling him and why I was there. At the end of my appointment he said "I am going to do everything in my power to help you." It took everything I had in me to not burst into tears. His behavior throughout my entire appointment and that ending statement was exactly what I needed to hear. My symptoms these past couple of years have been so strange and they come and go. It was nice to feel reassured that he cared and was going to everything he could to help! Thank you so much Dr. Surbeck for being a Doctor that cares about his patients and makes sure they know they aren't in this alone!!!

I wish I could have gotten to see him sooner but that’s not the fault of the practice. It just means they are that good and sought after. Great doctor, very diligent nurse, and nice team overall. Likely one of the best you’ll find in Tulsa.
