I have been seeing Dr Ince for a few years now and find him to be very pleasant, straight with me when I ask questions about the RA I have. When I first saw him (after being treated by a less then qualified MD) Dr Ince took the time to work with me to find the best medication and amount of medications that works to keep the arthritis under control. I have never had him treat me poorly and he himself has called me to answer my questions.

I saw this man over a year ago for my RA and Sjogren's and he was dismissive and uncaring. I told him i had tried a multitude of medicine's which the side effects are far worse than the pain experienced (ie hospitalization due to ulcer)... he said i was wasting my time because he "prescribes medicine" and that is all. Waste of time, money and energy. I will never recommend him to anyone to see unless they already know what works for them in treatment.

Absolutely the worst doctor I have ever met. Gave me very little time and dismissed my illness as if not important enough to see him. DO NOT under any circumstances see this doctor, Waste of your time and money. Staff will not return calls or reply to messages that are left for them. Most unprofessional group in dealing with the public.

I've had a very positive experience with Dr. Ince as my Rheumatologist. Dr. Ince accurately diagnosed my Psoriatic Arthritis and worked with me to find the right medicine to treat my condition. I was practically disabled when I first saw Dr. Ince. Almost three years later, I am symptom-free using Enbrel weekly as prescribed by Dr. Ince. Arthritis is a very complicated disease that is not easy to treat. But with Dr. Ince's help, I'm able to do everything I could do before the disease.

Bizarre and aloof attitude.
in St. Louis, MO |
Dr. Ince was pleasant in my initial appointment but became more impatient and rushed in subsequent appointments. He seemed more concerned if I was five minutes late than how my health was. He does not take the time to explain what is going on and options available for treatment. He resented when I suggested that I should have an xray and, when I insisted, he would not let me have it done at the office where there's an xray. He holds grudges if you ask questions. Poor interpersonal skills.

Dismissed me when he saw I had fibro even though I was there to see him for extensive osteoarthritis from head to toe. Would not EVEN look at my X-rays. Very arrogant and uncaring. I cried all the way to my car. It cost me $90 (out of my pocket) to be treated like crap. Mi would not recommend him to a flea.
in St Louis, MO |
During my visits, the receptionist, assistant who took vitals, and other staff were brusque and not at all pleasant. Dr. Ince usually spent a minimum amount of time with me, leaving before I had a chance to ask questions. When I tried to get results of tests, I had to call several times before I finally got to talk to the doctor, and he simply sent me to another specialist telling me it was urgent but not explaining anything. He may know what he is doing, but the patient experience is poor.
