I had a wonderful consultation with Dr. Erin Bauer. She spent a lot of time explaining my disease, condition and the treatment recommended and why. I feel a genuine, caring concern she has for me. She explains things at length with empathy. I feel very blessed to have her watching over me. She is a top expert in her field! I feel I found the very best doctor in the state of Washington to care for me and my PMR.

  Overall Patient Rating - July 2019
I still do not understand how my disease measures up to what others experience or what the progression looks like if not controlled. I don't know if this is something that can be answered but I don't feel as though I have a good handle on my RA. But Dr. Bauer is FAR SUPERIOR in communicating to me than I had before changing providers from UW. Dr. Bauer and your RA dept is why I opted to switch from 30+ years at UW.

Good.

this is only the third time I've seen Dr. Bauer and we are beginning to establish a very good working relationship. I am impressed and very pleased, particularly because I only see her every six months. Having been a nurse most of my life, I understand the difficulties in providing meaningful patient care in today's health care system. I commend Dr. Bauer, her staff and Virginia Mason as a whole for the excellent service they provide to their patients.

I can't say enough about Dr Bauer and her interactions with me. I think my blood pressure is actually lower than normal when I visit her because of the confidence I have in her.
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2019
It was clear that she hadn't planned to spend as much time with me as she did - Sent the nurse in to wrap things up & left the room & did not return.
