My wife and I have both seen Dr. Amish Dave. We have sat in on each other´s visits. We think Dr. Dave is AMAZING in every way!
Dr. Dave is the BEST RA doctor I´ve had in years. THANK YOU! I would recommend him to anyone that needs an excellent and kind arthritis doctor.
Dr was excellent very present in the moment and showed concern and empathy made me feel very comfortable
The best rheumatologist I have seen in my twelve years with RA.
*Dr. Dave is very easy to talk to and knowledgeable.
*Dr. Dave is great, always helpful.
Dr Dave was great. understood my specific concerns and care, and genuinely cared.
Dr. Dave answered all my questions and was very generous with his time. I would have liked to receive either a print-out or a document on the patient portal summarizing our discussion, with information on the plan for increasing dosages of my new medication, which Dr. Dave says won´t be detailed in the information I receive when I fill my prescription.
I feel very comfortable in the care I received and feel like I can call in if a situation comes up
Still to early to know if he is good or not, but right now he really seems to know something. This is a complicated case and he seems to work well with the other docs involved.
I think Dr. Dave is knowledgeable. He is also very good about answering emails. However, I feel that he may make assessments quickly and even jump to conclusions without enough information from the patient. He also seems to easily be convinced his assements are 100% correct. I have had more than one occasion where I did not feel as if he were fully listening to my input regarding my own body.
I was very impressed with Dr. Dave. He was a very nice person and I felt comfortable talking with him about my health concerns.
Showed interest in my concerns with advise and suggestions. Also sent several mailings. Very nice dr.!
Cannot say enough good things about Dr. Dave. He must have seen the fact from my pcp in my chart that I was due for a tetanus/whooping cough injection and he gave me that right then and there. I told him about a problem I was having with my shoulder, he sent a msg. through to another office to call me for an appt., and they called me as soon as I got home that day to make the appt. I´m honestly extremely happy with Dr. Dave and the Virginia Mason team.
Dr. Dave has my complete trust and respect.
Dr. Dave is one of the 2 best RA drs. I´ve had in over 30 years. Maybe 40. He is extremely logical and kind.
I have referred two friends to Dr. Dave.
Highly recommended by my dr. Dr. Dave
8. Dr. Dave seemed a bit rushed today, but very in tune & thoughtful in considering my concerns. I appreciate that he thinks & comes up with a plan before discussing possible next steps.
I can´t say enough about Dr. Dave. He is a lovely person and a very attentive doctor. His follow up is as fast and consistent as any doctor I have ever had. I recommended him to my primary care dr. in Poulsbo!
Dr. Dave and Dr. Naimen are amazing. If they ever left VM I would be willing to travel out of state to see them. when I was sick with my autoimmune disease and it wasn´t diagnosed yet they were both so kind and helpful and told me they would figure out what was wrong. Other doctors I had seen just thought I was crazy but these two helped find out what was actually wrong and helped me get better.
I was very pleased with all phases of Dr. Dave´s care.
I am the President on Facebook for the Pacific Northwest of people with my disease. I will recommend dr. Amish Dave to everyone that is in need in this area. He is a wonderful doctor and the care team is awesome
Very thorough & kind.
Dr Dave is extremely caring and knowledgeable. highly recommend him to other patients.
I am an active worker and mother who has been working with rheumatologist for over twenty years for shogrens/lupus. dr. Dave seems to be concerned and focused on laboratory results as indication of my current well being. although rating my pain level a six, dr. Dave compared it to the soreness after one of his workouts. I found this very dismissive as he had not begun the conversation with exploring the types of pains I was experiencing. I was given advice to stretch more and take medication. I was transparent in my concerns with dr. Dave. I did appreciate his effort to better understand my needs and he was kind and apologetic. but his casual approach to my current state which takes great effort to achieve will not work for me. I believe he is very technically strong and also wants to do the right things; however his ability to explore my condition and understand my needs was poor.
Dr Dave is very easy to talk with and is sincere
I would recommend him IMMEDIATELY but I really don´t know anyone else around here (in this part of the country) with RA. If I meet someone, I will definitely recommend Dr. Dave.
I live about an hour away from the Virginia Mason Bainbridge Clinic and of course it is longer if one has to go to Seattle itself because of the necessary ferry. However, to me and my wife that is time worth taking for the quality of doctors, nurses, technicians and staff that we have found with Virginia Mason.
Dr. A. Dave very responsive & timely in providing feedback on test results.
Dr. Dave is an excellent physician. He listens carefully and involves his patients in their own care. I highly recommend Dr. Dave.
All of the physicians I have met with at Winslow have been wonderful. Couldn´t be happier with all of them.
The Dr. is always listening to both my husband and me. He gets back to what we were talking about even though something else interrupts. The Dr. has many more suggestions/choices to help with my pain then I have ever heard from any other dr. The distance from Sequim to Bainbridge is quite a journey but is well worth it. Maybe some day you be able to have a clinic in Sequim.
I have seen over a dozen doctors for ankylosing spondylitis, and Dr. Dave is by far my most trusted and helpful doctor. He works efficiently yet is willing to answer every question I have. he cares about my well being yet makes measured, appropriate responses to my needs. He wants me to succeed in all aspects of my life. I will be sad to no longer receive care from Dr. Dave when I leave Seattle.
Best Rheumatologist I have seen
Dr Dave was very kind, gentle, caring, compassionate. Wanted to get to the bottom of my problem. Did not feel rushed - excellent experience!
both Dr Dave and intern were both personable and informative.
I truly believe that Dr. Dave is going to take very good care of me.
Dr. Dave is wonderful. He is a good listener and explains every concern with details. Dr. Dave involves his patients in their own care. I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone who needs a rheumatologist.
I have probably seen a dozen doctors for care of my ankylosing spondylitis over the past ten years, often due to changes in location. Dr. Dave is hands down my favorite due to his expertise, willingness to dive into the details, and his respect and value for my perspective and considerations.
Dr Dave was understanding and empathetic and very thorough.
First visit to this particular doctor. I felt he was a little rushed and darted through a couple of my questions. He was exactly on time, so I didn´t fully understand the _____. I will probably go to my old doctor next time, but was told "why go to Seattle when you can go to Winslow?"
A very good start with Dr Dave.
a very good doctor
Dr. Dave is such a relief to be around. He has a much different way of dealing with my RA, plus, I am treated as a PERSON, not a piece of furniture. He is great, kind and understands everything. I seriously have had very few RA doctors who know what they´re doing and this has been going on for 41 years. I am not joking. Dr. Dave is AWESOME!!!
I appreciate the time that Dr. Dave spends with me. He does not seemed rushed and I feel he really takes the time to answer all my questions and concerns. I am so happy he is also serving Winslow...I drive from Port Orchard so it is far less of a hassle to just drive to the island. :)
Dr Dave was friendly and easy to communicate with and included me in the decision making.
