Dr. David Dansdill, MD
I would like to take this opportunity to tell you more about myself and my experience in healthcare. I am originally from Burlington, Iowa, and I earned my B.A. degree in biology and completed the Honors Program at the University of Kansas in Lawrence. I continued my studies at the University of Kansas in Kansas City and Wichita, obtaining my medical degree. Following my graduation, I pursued a medical internship and advanced medical training as part of my residency in Wichita, where I was selected to a chief residency position in internal medicine. In addition, I completed a subspecialty training program, or fellowship, in rheumatology and immunology at the University of Missouri. My practice is focused on rheumatology, which is the medical treatment of musuloskeletal pain, arthritis, osteoporosis, and autoimmune diseases. It is my mission to provide you excellent service, as well as compassionate care. I always strive to provide you the same high quality medical care that I would offer to a member of my family. I am actively involved in continuing medical education. During my years of practice in Rockford, I have been an active member of the University of Illinois Medical School, where I have led case discussions and lectured extensively. Additionally, I have published research projects including experimental computerized teaching of rheumatology to residents and under- graduates, and quantification of exercise capacity of rheumatoid arthritis patients. In addition to my extensive medical commitments, I enjoy spending time with my family-wife, Dr. Beatriz Rodriguez, and three children Daniel, Maria, and Gabriel- and being a member of the Holy Family Church Choir. I love music and enjoy sports, hunting, fishing, and perennial gardening. I am also proud to have served as captain in the United States Army Reserve as a medical officer from 1982 to 1990. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to further improve your experience at OrthoIllinois. My goal is to provide you the best medical care available.

Dr.Dansdill is awesome!!
in Rockford, IL |
I had a rheumatology emergency and Dr. Dansdil met me at his office at 8:30 on his day off. He was attentive, thorough, knowledgeable and took care of medication, and setting up appointments I needed with other specialists. He arranged immediate additional labs and a follow up appointment with him within a week as soon as he receives results of other specialists procedures. I couldn't have asked for better medical attention.

This man literally saved my life by sending me to MAYO CLINIC where they found 2 kidney blockages that were not even detected by my doctor here in Rockford (who was out of town at the time -- THANK GOD). Dr. DANSDILL is a kind, compassionate, caring doctor who actually listens to you.
