I was given the appropriate tests for my symptoms, which were negative, but wasn't offered advice on how to proceed to whatever should come next. I felt if this doctor could not help me she would have offered a referral to another medical field. I am no better off or closer to an answer for what is happening to me than I was before my arrival. And the over 3 months waiting time for an appointment while suffering was extreme.

Dr. Ray is compassionate and I can tell she's always thinking about treatment options for me as I cannot take biologics for treatment options due to lung problems that I have. so she even decided to bring in two of my other doctors for their opinions. I enjoy my office visits with her because I know she really cares and worries about my level of pain and what the RA is doing to my body. she explains everything thoroughly and always tells me to contact her anytime when I'm not doing well. for me she's my hero.

Since when does the CC allow dogs (other then service dogs) in the clinic. In the doctors waiting room a women had a dog on a leash who she allowed to jump up on the various chairs next to her as she waited for the spot. Is was surprised the receptionist did not say anything Not only do I think it is unsanitary for them to be on the chairs but for people with animal allergies to be put at risk UGH I do not mind well behaved service dogs sitting on the floor to be there ,other then that I loved my first visit with Dr Ray
