Dr Medsger is the most experienced physician nationwide and worldwide in this particular field. He knows all the details and predictions about my disease. I am glad that I am in good hand. He deserves the honor of the Medsger Chair from U Pitt.

Dr. Medsger is the best. I am very gratefull.

June 29, 2016

Dr. Medsger has been my rheumatologist for 18 years. He has overseen all of my medical concerns related to my illness and has been successful in helping me go into remission on several occasions. He is an excellent diagnostician. My insurance no longer covers seeing Dr. Medsger on a 100% basis as it used to, but I have decided to continue with him, paying the out of pocket expenses myself. He is dedicated to his field and is an excellent physician.
