Great first time visit with Dr. Douglas.
Patient | January 18, 2017

Dr. Douglas was the best dr. I've ever been to. Made me feel relaxed & explained everything so I could understand & gave me time to ask questions.
Patient | January 12, 2017

This care provider has taken excellent care of me for years. I drive 1 hr. 45 min. for my appointments. I trust no other care provider with my condition. When I first came to this care provider, I was partially using a cane. I no longer need any assistance when walking.
Patient | December 30, 2016

Patient | November 22, 2016

Dr. Douglas was very kind and helpful. He gave me info I needed and was very good in performing procedures. I have given his name to my primary care provider for referrals he may want to make to a rheumatologist.
Patient | November 17, 2016

I did not have any tests or procedures. Dr. Douglas takes the time to know his patients and their concerns. He is informative and he cares. I wish all of my doctors, dentist, or anyone I had to deal with regarding something important (such as my health) was like Dr. Douglas. You don't find many doctors who will take the time to properly understand your situation/illness and listen. Too often doctors chuck pills and tests at patients. Not Dr. Douglas. He listens. He is knowledgeable. He cares and he wants you to get/feel better.
Patient | November 14, 2016

Dr. listened & showed concern and optimism.

Dr. Douglas has been my Rhuematologist for many years now....if not for him I do not believe I would be walking today. He has treated my severe arthritis and gout problems that had me in such pain I could barely walk. I highly recommend him to anyone needing relief from such disease or injury.

Patient | August 22, 2016

I felt he completely discounted my symptoms and gave me no help in managing my pain.

Patient | April 1, 2016

Dr. Douglas is everything I like in a doctor. Great role model for other doctors!
Patient | April 1, 2016

The first time he told me I had fibromyalgia and put me on cymbalta - he gave no explanation to the illness, no information, no next steps. There was nothing to help me understand the medicine or the condition. I went back and it was the same thing all over again. Nothing explained, didn't listen to me, cut me off from my questions about my symptoms, to give reasons why my symptoms don't make sense medically so I need to toughen up when I've had fevers for over 6 months that no one can explain along with other symptoms but you can't fake a fever of 100-101 so that should give me some validity to a doctor. Yet I was left to felt like my symptoms were invalid.
Patient | March 14, 2016

Patient | February 15, 2016

I drive over an hour and a half (one way) to see Dr. Douglas. That within itself should speak volumes of him as a doctor.
Patient | February 8, 2016

Dr Douglas is my favorite health care provider.
Patient | February 3, 2016

I felt very rushed - not enough relaxed time to tell him all that was going on. Didn't really seem interested(which has not been my past experience). It was like he was just ready to be done for the day. I'm afraid I let that frustrate me enough that I wa
Patient | January 26, 2016
