I have been a patient of Dr Traverse for ~9 years and he has been a god send in my care both physically and emotionally. He is extremely compassionate , takes the time to listen and has the knowledge and devotion to continuously strive to refine my therapies so that the best possible improvements are attained which is very difficult based on my complex conditions. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I have been seeing Dr.Traverse since 2008. He has gone above and beyond For me. Because of my complications from End Stage Liver Disease. He was the only one I really trusted with my personal Health issues. I Highly recommend him as an excellent Rheumatologist. He is very understanding of many other ailments as well. He deserves 11 stars.

Dr Traverse is a thoughtful thorough physician. It is clear that he has reviewed my charts, results and history prior to each exam. I appreciate that he never seems rushed and enjoys his vocation. I would recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Traverse is a rare bird. He takes an inordinate amount of time and energy with his patients and is unusually attention-to-detail. He is a medical detective, a tenacious sleuth; and will call colleagues to confer with them about your condition. Plus he's a doll. Will chat you up about sports or whatever--without worrying about time. Dr. Traverse is a special doctor. It's hard not to adore him.
