Really good experience. I´m very happy to try a new treatment to see if it will help. I think I would have liked to spend more time with her to discuss if my new symptoms were common, or if there would be additional avenues to pursue.
In the 15 years that I have lived with and been treated for my autoimmune disease, I´ve seen five different rheumatologists. One of them I saw for five years that I really liked, but she eventually moved. Dr. Bauer is even better; I like her personality, care, concern, and bedside manner. I first saw her in Seattle when she came to VM and now appreciate being able to see her in Federal Way as it´s closer to my home. I prefer a female rheumatologist and Dr. Bauer has been a blessing to find!
Dr. Bauer is exceptional. She has always come across as a caring physician. You can tell she has a passion for her work and that you are in good hands.
this doctor took me in at the end of the day to treat me , if all people would treat others with the respect that dr bauer showed me this world wood be a lot happier place she has all my respect because she knows her field . I thanked dr bauer for stayiny to help me ,i was in pretty bad shape ready to just go to the hospital.
Dr. Bauer listened and offered to help get me referred to the right departments. It was appreciated.
Dr. Bauer was excellent in term of care, information, and options provided. I´d recommend her in a heartbeat!
Dr. Bauer is very thorough and has improved my health significantly.
She was absolutely top notch. Both my wife and I am very pleased.
i appreciated receiving written synopsis of visit and directions for lab and x-rays and how to take meds. I referred to those to confirm plan of treatment
Care provider was very informative and helpful.
Dr. Bauer is the best. Very smart & up to date.
Dr. Bauer is AMAZING! She listens to her patients and makes sure they understand treatment options. I was impressed that she knew exactly what was going on as soon as she saw me. She and her team fought to get me proper medication. I couldn´t be more pleased with Dr. Bauer and her staff. If I send an email I´ll always have a response back from her or Ellie within an hour tops (normal business hours). I can´t underscore enough how wonderful Dr. Bauer and her staff are.
For #7 above, I did have to ask some clarifying questions about a couple words used, and the Doctor answered in terms I fully understood. Thank you
Dr. Bauer was very pleasant, took care in explaining my situation and a medication I will be starting,
there was a mistake in scheduling, so I saw her rather than my regular Doctor (Yin), she was very kind and answered any questions I had.
Even though the facility is far away I will keep coming because of how good providers are.
I don´t know enough about rheumatology - no one to compare Dr. Bauer to - as far as our contacts go. She seemed great.
She had read my chart from the previous visits with my "home" doctor so didn´t have many questions and said they would do labs and radiology. Got an email the next day with her recommendation.
