She is thorough and very good at diagnosing rheumatic conditions, I even recommended her to family and friends. I see her regularly and and never fails to live up to my expectations, giving me time at each visit and full explanation for what she suggests for me. I am fully confident in my care with her, she is up to date with new arthritis treatments. Thanks, Dr. D!

She is a wonderful physician!! Takes a great deal of time with me, I have a complex history, explains details of my treatment plans and is very responsive to my medical concerns! I would follow her anywhere, very helpful and great bedside manner, knowledgable!

She was extremely thorough in taking a history, examining me, and looking at my past records. She listened well. However, once my lab results were returned, it was difficult to speak with her. She told me that she is 'only a consultant.' She recommended specific treatment but my family doctor did not want to order that medication, so essentially I had the work-up with no resultant treatment.

I will NEVER go to this Doctor again. Find someone else! She has a horrible bedside manner, very rude, selfish and ineffective. Do not go to her!!

Most un professional rude person. Had to wait for her to get back from some medical leave before I could have my son seen. Needed before he went back to college. 1 month. Didn't want here in first place. Rules.alreadyndid all leg work research and follow ups with genetics , needed something for pain, headaches, diabilate for day or so. Would not prescribe test for genetics. Hypermobility so bad joins just fall out. Told skin sensitive to all touch. Hurt here yea hurt here ya told ya. Ok you have fibro all sensitive spots hurt. Yea and the rest of his body too. Needed to talk about small hospital movie I made in ICU last time. She would not watch with me next I know nurse came in and we were dismissed by her and with next patient! Waited 2 more hours to talk to her and all she did was talk would not listen to me again! Told her I needed to talk it was my turn I waited. Called security and had me and son escorted out. Went straight to ER with son and was admitted. He did not need anything pain so bad after incident could not walk! Go to anybody else! Please.
