Dr. Troum is by far the most exceptional doctor. He is so completely thorough and knowledgeable with every aspect of my visits. Not to mention his fantastic bedside manner.I couldn't possibly ask for a better Doctor. I wish he practiced general medicine as well since going to any other doctor for various things is always a let down because no one can compare to Dr.Troum. He truly deserves an award.

THE DOCTOR HAD TO SPEND WAY WAY TOO MUCH TIME ON THE COMPUTER [...] ALSO: THE AFTER VISIT SUMMARY FROM THE HOSPITAL CONTAINED MANY ERRORS, ALTHOUGH THE SUMMARY FROM THE OFFICE WAS CORRECT EXCEPT VITAL INFO ON MEDICATIONS, WHICH WAS INCORRECT

Dr. Troum and his staff have always provided a friendly, professional but caring approach to my Healthcare needs and that of my husband.

I have acquired some poor health issues and had found it very hard to navigate through the healthcare system so when you find somebody liket as special is this DR you are so grateful I'm sure there will be a lot of hits and misses during my time of diagnosis. with Dr Troum it was a home run or I should perhaps a more than that he found something that was not diagnosed by any other doctor that was life-threatening!!!

the best physician I have ever had. I work in healthcare and all other physicians I have are the top in their field of expertise. Dr. Troum has been my PCP for 20 years and he is amazing! I have referred many new patients to him, and they all love him

Best rheumatologist I could've hoped for. I was dismissed by the people at [...] who didn't listen to run the right times. Dr. Troum figured things out and helped me unlike any other doctors past or present. At my last visit he detected some irregularities and referred me to a hematologist. None of my other doctors figured that out. Dr. Troum is a treasure!

I think Dr. Troum is an excellent doctor. I don't feel as rushed during appointments as with some other doctors I have seen. He addresses my concerns and answers questions. I like that he uses a scribe during the exam so he can focus on me and not on entering data on a computer. I also like that prescription requests are handled quickly and without errors even when prior authorization is needed. His staff is friendly and efficient. Only complaint so far is the difficulty of getting appointments due to the doctor being so busy.

Dr. Troum takes his time. I love that he uses a note-taker so he talks directly TO me. Willingness to discuss treatment options is exceptional. Very comprehensive exam. Office is so helpful getting medications approved by insurance.

I believe Dr. Troum is an extraordinary M.D.with two pretty rare qualities: he listens and he thoroughly explains
100

07/17/2018
Dr. Troum was very patient and understanding in regards to how I felt about a new health concern. He discussed the options and told me my choices regarding treatments. I appreciated his expertise. Also, he was running behind and came in to my waiting room and told me he would be there soon. Side note:The nurse put me in the a room and completed her part of my exam very promptly. Then I waited for Dr. Troum for more than 15 minutes. That is when he asked if I needed anything while I waited a bit more. I appreciated that. It made it ok to have to wait a little more.

Doctor was running a half hour late and was out of office. Office tried to call me with very short notice but I was en route and didn't get message. When I arrived for my appointment at expected time, staff told me he would be back within a half-hour of my appointment time and he was back in the time stated. At that point I saw the doctor almost immediately.

Dr. Troum is a wonderful doctor. He is in a class by himself. He is extremely attentive, personable and knowledgeable. I felt as though I was talking with a friend. I have been seeing a pain doctor for the last few years and have been very dissatisfied with him. I decided to see Dr. Troum, who I had seen several years ago instead of the pain doctor. The difference between the two doctors is like night and day. I am very pleased with my decision to see Dr. Troum. The only negative part of the appointment was that there was a long wait to see the doctor.

Staff was unable to draw my blood. I was stuck 6 or 7 times (both arms, both hands, various-sized needles, two different assistants). They obtained only one vial, but needed two and gave up because the tests were not urgent. [...] does not have nearly that much trouble drawing my blood.
