Love this man. He is a God sent.. he has helped me so much. Just takes a while yo get in to see him.
I have reviewed records from this doctor. He is absolutely an excellent rheumatologist. I would recommend him to anyone suffering from fibromyalgia, lupus, or from long-term chronic pain caused by an inflammatory arthritis, sjogren's, lyme, etc. He is quick to accurately diagnose or rule-out conditions that take some physicians years to figure out. He recommends an appropriate course of treatment. Gives accurate prognoses.
I've been seeing Dr. Bankhurst since I was ten years old I'm 27 now. I have never had a problem during my 17 years of being his patient. He is an excellent doctor,always listens to what I have to say,he really cares about his patients. He spends as much time with you as you need,anwsers all your questions honestly. Overall he is terrific and I recomend him to anyone that wants a high quality, caring doctor.
