This was my first visit with my new rheumatologist. She was great, very thorough. She suggested some additional treatment as well as offering to contact another provider for another concern I had, other than for arthritis. I appreciated her suggestions.

  Overall Patient Rating - October 2019
I am so fortunate to have Dr. Bauer. She explains her reasoning simply and kindly. She always listens to me and I know she genuinely cares. From what I hear from other folks with autoimmune conditions, these are rare qualities in a rheumatologist. I only wish she had more time in her schedule.

I have recommended VM as well as Dr. Bauer specifically, numerous times. I know for a fact that one of my referrals directly scheduled with Dr. Bauer and really likes her as well.

Dr. Bauer always provide - in writing - the future care suggestions and directions.
  Overall Patient Rating - October 2019
I thought there would be a follow up call of what I need to do next. The ending conversation was - "follow up w/your regular doctor" but he sent me here because no one can figure my symptoms out. I don't know what to do and have no concrete answer.
