From a patient view

Dr Dewar is extremely has great knowledge of medicine and bedside manner is excellent. In every aspect of her practice she is excellent and professional but keeps her persona intertwine in applying her practice. She is a great clinician, researcher, publisher, and leader with her peers and staff. Unfortunately, I see her leaving for a higher position or moving up in the Kaiser sysrtem.
