I have been seeing Dr Dames for almost 10 years. She really has taken my case to heart, and has expressed she her concerns very well. Great doctor, great person.

I've had arthritis for 20 years and have been on medication for treating it. My doctor moved so I decided to try Dr. Dames. Once in her office I was told she was unwilling to prescribe my current medications and that the only thing she could recommend was tylenol. I have never been so ignored my a doctor in my life. I won't return nor recommend her "services"
in Salt Lake City, UT |
Dr. Dames did not listen to my concerns. Seems her favorite response was, What else?.. Repeatedly. She downplayed my symptoms when I am the one suffering and I know how and what I am feeling. Terrible bedside manner and did not seem concerned with my well being at all!. Do your self a favor and seek another Dr. Waited a long time for the appointment, not worth the wait at all. Highly overpriced Dr.

It was more important that she got her clinical notes done during our time together than it was for me to understand what I was experiencing. She diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia on paper then when I caught wind of it she commented if I need to label it then yes I have this as well. I spent 3 years with her and found her lacking in common courtesy as well as providing accurate medical records of the time we spent together.
