    Not a single complaint.
    Jan 10, 2023
    I am never rushed by Dr. Dietz during any appointment no matter the length of appointment that my condition at the time requires. He actively listens evaluates and makes a solid intelligent plan. My overall health has improved since I first started seeing him after several years of my local rheumatologist referred me to him to get me out of a health rut. I've had several excellent rheumatologists but I have to say he has been the best: most thorough analytical highly educated and very amiable. Appointments are a pleasant experience no matter how much pain I'm in!

    Mar 22, 2022
    Dr. Dietz in one of the best medical doctors I have experienced with respect to interactive style - I can't think of anything that he could have done better: informed courteous always conveyed interest and respect in our mutual task of getting to the bottom of my issues and finding an accurate solution- diagnosis . Although this is not a requirement for me as I do not expect all medical providers to have such high interpersonal inquiry skills he is one of the best doctors conveying concern and well informed care I have had (and I have much experience as a cancer survivor with long term side effects).
    Feb 23, 2022
    I feel like Dr Dietz and I are a team. He actually listens and considers my feelings in his decisions
