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.

Leah Leonhardt – Feb 28, 2020
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.
