Dr. Dancea is very through. She strives to find the right treatment. She is friendly and thoughtful. She always wants to know if there is a problem and is opened to calls. She never makes me feel that she is rushing through. She takes the time to talk to me and find out how I am doing before she examines me. Her staff as well is very helpful and caring. Her lab tech is also very professional and does a good job. I would recommend Dr. Dancea and her practice to friends and family.

I am pleased to recommend Dr. Dancea to be your physician if you are looking for someone who sincerely cares about your health and will listen to your concerns and take time with you and you are not feeling hurried, as if you are "just another patient". She will be honest with you and gently recommend a better way of obtaining better health without condemnation.

Dr. Dancea came into the room with a smile and that meant a lot to my Wife. She listened to my wife while she explained the areas she was having pain and the Dr. took notes. Dr. Dancea examined each joint to determine the most affected areas. Dr. Dancea is person that you feel like you have known for years. Her mannerism is excellent. She never made us feel like she was in a hurry. Lewis Gale Hospital is very fortunate to have a Doctor like this. Her staff was equally friendly and helpful

I was misdiagnosed with my inflammatory arthritis from my Dr in Florida. After being treated by Dr. Dancea with appropriate medicine I am now pain free. She is very attentive and listened to me and therefore I am having a life free of pain and enjoying retirement.

I like her as a person and am confident in her professional abilities. She is honest yet kind in her assessments, gentle of touch, asks questions, and pays attention to details. Wants to know you as a person, not just by your condition.

Dr Dancea is amazing. She pays so much attention that she knows when my hands are swollen and hurting before I say anything. She remembers me from visit to visit. My insurance has been very difficult. And the office has been great. Got me on a medicine regimen that is really working for me. Even got me in the next day when I had bursitis, and gave me a cortisone shot.
