Anaheim, CA |
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.

Dr. Godfrey is an excellent rheumy, accessible and responsive. Staff is great. Practice is run in an organized and punctual fashion. Dr. Godfrey has been treating me since 2008. I highly recommend her for if you suffer from any rheumatological or autoimmune issues.

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.
