BEWARE!!! For all of you that are seeking DR Carolyn Pace to be your Rheumatologist. Here is our story, Last year when East Valley rheumatology close their doors, I was was forced to find a new Doctor. We were one of the lucky few (unlucky as our case) to be accepted as a new patient. At first all was good, I was already on a RA medicine that was doing its job and things were great, but come January 1 2017, new insurance so that meant New Pre-authorizations were needed to continue with the curre

My mother has been going to Dr. Pace for years. I am not sure why we have allowed my mom to stay as her patient. Her staff is without doubt the worst staff a Dr. could have. They do not return calls, they do not let you make another appointment while you are there. Either they do not give her the messages you leave her, or she just does not bother to return your calls. All in All, you get a real sense of "we could car less" from her and her staff. We are currently looking for another Dr.

Has an email "audition" system as a way of stringing along potential new patients. Doesn't answer emails, refuses to schedule over the phone. Is NOT accepting new patients, so just move along, nothing to see here. Wait time? I've been waiting FOUR MONTHS to even get a "we can't see you at this time" message. So rude.

She was ok until I had a crisis and needed her help for the additional pain I was suffering. Then she was suddenly and strangely unavailable. She told her staff to tell me she was not there (a lie). Then she dropped me as a patient by mail. She actually and for no reason accused me of selling the drugs she was prescribing for my fibromyalgia! Stupid and uninformed.

The Dr's office staff is almost completely inept. The answering system, which is active 110% of the time, routes calls off into space. Calls are rarely returned timely. Sometimes not at all. Prescription refills are promised, but very rarely delivered without callback after callback.

Dr. Pace is the most patient-focused doctor I have ever experienced. She allows a extended period of time for each visit. Not only does she actually READ the labs and paperwork ahead of a visit, but thoroughly reviews my immediate medical needs as well as the emotional aspects of having a chronic illness. Dr. Pace is professional, organized and respectful. I'd recommend her to anyone.

Wonderful, compassionate, knowledgeable Rheumatologist. Excellent bedside manner, focused on solving and alleviating patient disease and accompanying conditions. ***** Five stars for Dr. Pace!!

Staff changes regular, long wait times, you are given a quick how are you feeling and short physical exam and make sure she accepts your insurance every time you visit. She stopped taking ours, but said don't worry about it and then sent it to a collection service.
