I always feel as though my condition has been reviewed thoroughly after I have had an appointment with her. We discuss any problems that I have had since my last appointment with her, and we discuss the best options for my condition. She has always allowed my opinion to be considered when discussing my RA. She has such a calming manner, and I feel fortunate to have her as my physician.

Dr Dancea is a wonderful Dr. and a caring person. Just what you want when you suffer from the chronic pain of autoimmune disorders. Precautions were in place due to the coronavirus, I felt safe. All personnel were safely equipped , including the Dr. As usual, it was a short wait and a timely visit. No hurries involved.

Dr Dancea listens carefully to what I say and doesn’t hurry me. She carefully tests to be sure prescribed drugs are not hurting my liver or other body parts. She treats me a senior with respect.

I have been a patient of Dr. Sorina Dancea since August 2017. I was in excruciating pain which was significantly diminishing my quality of life and was jeopardizing my ability to continue to live independently. Dr. Dancea was able to prescribe the tests which enabled her to give me a definitive diagnosis with treatment that could help restore me to a good quality of life and allow me to continue to live independently with dignity. Dr. Dancea is attentive to my medical needs, is very knowledgeable, and is compassionate, as are the clinical and administrative staff. I highly recommend Dr. Dancea for anyone who requires medical care for arthritis or rheumatoid arthritis.
