    This Dr. should just retire. She obviously doesn't like working with people, and she has appointments scheduled so close together that the wait times are 1-2 hours long at times. I've had to sit in the waiting room for almost 2 hours one day before cancelling because I had to pick up my daughter at school. Dr. Field never made me feel comfortable, and it was obvious that she held herself in a much higher regard than she did me. I eventually found an excellent Dr who cares.
    in Macungie, PA |
    She is the most knowledgable rheumatologist in the Lehigh Valley. She is passionate about her field and her patients. I have been her care for SLE for over 7 years and she is worth the wait room time.
    in Saylorsburg, PA |
    I was apprehensive about my first visit due to some of the comments I read on this site. I could not have been more pleased with Dr Fields. I waited in the waiting room for 5 minutes after my apt time, and another 15 minutes in the examining room. She was professional,pleasant, thorough, caring and clearly a great diagnostician. She spent an hour in the exam room with me taking a history, reviewing my records and examining me. She explained our course of action and answered all my questions.
