I loved when I was referred over to her after loosing my previous rheumatologist. She knew what medicine to treat me with right away and discovered my new disease. But over the last two years I have dreaded going to her clinic because they make you see the NP. Now if I call with a problem it seems as if I never hear from Dr. Rockhold, it's always the NP. I pay to see my doctor and talk to her and I should get what I pay for.

I've been a patient of Dr Rockhold's for 16 plus years! She has helped me get my RA under control. I always feel like she really cares about how I am doing. She spends adequate time with me also.
