She's very compassionate, very understanding, she cares. She takes her time and make sure that the patient and the doctor on the same page and she's very thorough and takes her job very seriously and cares about the patient. And this is the first rheumatologist that I have had since I was diagnosed at 23 and I am now 40 that I have found that is so caring and so thorough and takes her job so seriously. So I'm very grateful for her.

My appointment was at 3:30. I needed to be there by 3:15 or 3 o'clock because I was a new patient. I got there about 3:10. I had most of my papers filled out. The receptionist was more interested in ordering breakfast pizza for the following day than checking me in. I didn't get into the room until almost 5 o'clock. It was after that before I saw the doctor and I think she is probably very efficient, but the efficiency that she has of talking into her recorder while I am trying to tell her something is very annoying. I am hoping that my next visits will be greatly improved.

Felt like Dr. Dames covered all the bases and wanted to make sure she was caring for all my concerns. Very thorough and very kind. The nurse Heather was also very kind and courteous as well. Both very easy to talk to.
February 25, 2021
Everyone was very kind. The receptionist even walked me to the lab since I didn't know where I was going. Dr. Dames is amazing, she took the time to listen to me and asked me questions for a thorough history. She even printed out medical articles for me to read at home about my varying conditions.

Dr. Dames is young enough to be current on most recent practices. Dr. Dames told me to skip a weekly medication after Covid-19 vaccine. I would not have known otherwise. Maybe I asked if any prescriptions would interfere with C-19 which I had scheduled for following day. She was focused on understanding me at that time.
