Nancy F. Godfrey is unsurpassed in her care and concern for her patients. After years of dealing with a myriad of pain and other issues and visiting doctors who told me, even as a child, that "it was all in my head," I found Dr. Godfrey upon moving to Long Beach. She began to slowly unravel the tangled web that was the autoimmune condition I had inherited. Working with her has been a saving grace that words will never adequately explain. She and her staff are exceptional, kind and professional .

Dr. Godfrey is just a brilliant, professional, expert! Having her to depend on for my care has been a pleasure and the only doctor I've met with such outstanding bed side mannerisms. Highly recommend her to anyone with osteo/rheumatic issues....she actually cares about her patients, going above and beyond to meet your medical needs. And always taking extra time with her patients with the grace of a true professional.

I have had a very poor experience here with Dr Godfrey and her billing staff. Like others reported on Yelp the doctor was impatient and the billing staff improperly billed me costing thousands of dollars. For the first time in my life i am considering filing a lawsuit.

She has been my Rheumatologist since about 1990. She has always been very good at answering my questions and helping me to cope with my RA. Her staff is uniformly wonderful, and 99% of the time the wait is very short.
