Dr Pone took her time with me each and every visit, never making me feel rushed or like my concerns weren’t important! After being in and out of the hospital for three years, and seeing three different rheumatologists, I have finally been healthy enough to be at home and enjoy everyday living. Her staff is also friendly and knowledgeable and appointments are quickly and easily made.

I was very pleased with my choice to see Dr Pone. I have been struggling with un-diagnosed RA for a few years. Dr Pone listened to and addressed all my concerns, sent me for further testing and developed a treatment plan to ease the symptoms. The office staff are very friendly and accommodating. Dr Pone is pleasant and very easy to talk to.

Dr. Pone is an excellent provider. She is very thorough and has an excellent bedside manner. Her staff is also very friendly and efficient. It’s not the most inviting location on the outside but the care inside has exceeded my expectations, which were rather high having a background in the medical field.

I visited Dr. Pone for the first time this past week. She graciously took the time to review my records before even meeting me. I had a small book worth of tests run previous to this visit. When she came in, she had add a page of notes in her own handwriting, and she explained all the tests and what they meant. Suffice it to say, I am so glad she was willing to do the hard work. I don't have RA, yet if I did- I would certainly go back to her despite a nearly 2 hr drive. She's that good.

Dr. prone is very knowledgeable . took the time to explain all of the options to me. She was truly concerned on my well being. She said I could call on her day or night 24/7 for questions or for help. I left feeling very confident I could depend on her for my medical needs. At first I was a little sketchy on the location but it is fine. parking is in front of office, very nice.

I'm glad I did not judge a book by its cover. Her office bldg/inter is dated but very clean. My impression is that she is attempting to build/establish her own practice. Dr. Pone seemed well versed in her Medical field. She had taken the time to explain & differentiate diagnosis's after test results & imaging came in. Aside her Medical expertise, Dr. Pone has a gentle kind compassionate bedside manner which really made receiving my diagnosis results much easier for me to handle. HIGHLY RECOMMEND
