From check in to completion this clinic runs very smoothly. Dr Dames is wonderful. She always asks and answers all the right questions. When I leave the office, I am clear on everything we covered and more! Dr Dames and the staff are the best!

We are so fortunate and blessed to have the expertise of a Rheumatologist of the qualities possessed by Dr. Dames. She is kind, caring, prompt, and competent to the Nth degree! We are so blessed to have her available in Pella! She is kind, caring, and "tells it as it is." Even amid the inevitable time constraints she is a wonderful listener and responds with the straight facts. Because I had not yet gotten around to having my flu shot, she made sure I had it before I left! Professional caring in action! How I wish someone with her competence could have helped my father a half century ago!

Dr Dames is a caring, intelligent, knowledgeable physician. She always is interested in me as a person and in my health care. She always listens and treats me well as a person. Her treatment plans always correct the problems I have had. I would recommend her to people who needed her type of care.

I appreciated Dr. Damess thoroughness and dedication to properly confirming a diagnosis before deciding on a treatment plan, particularly since it seems that my previous rheumatologist was less than thorough. It was a hard appointment for me emotionally and Dr. Dames was very empathetic about my situation.

This was my first experience with Dr. Dames and although I probably won't need to see her again, I would welcome the opportunity.

I found Shelby be very informational and very carrying. It was tough finding the decisions that she came up with, but she comforted me to let me know and explained to me that I needed to follow up with my family practice doctor.
