"I started as a new patient with Dr. Soforo in the Manitowoc office as of January 2016 being diagnosed with RA. I have now transferred to the Sheboygan office for convenience. From our first meeting being greeted with a smile and a firm handshake, she sat down to discuss my health history with me. Always listening to what I had to say and making good eye contact with me. After seeing her for many visits, she still maintains those same qualities and is very dedicated and sincere in helping me learn about and manage my RA now and in the future. With each visit, we discuss and work out together  my "game plan." Her staff is caring and professional as well continuing to help me make future appointments and answer any questions I have. I have, and in the future, will continue to recommend her to my friends." - Cathy H.
