I suppose these days a complete physical exam is not the norm, but how would a physician know if the patient had say a melanoma on the torso or extremities or how big a prostate was? I'm old school I know, retired surgeon. You'd think the initial exam, scheduled for an hour would have the patient disrobe and examined completely.

Sep 14
My HDL cholesterol number came back in the lab results at 215 but was 198 last time. Because this hadn't been a concern during the appointment because it was under 200, it wasn't something we discussed during the appointment. I would have appreciated some more guidance in the follow up email to help me understand this, why it might have changed, and what I could do to work on it.

If there were marks higher than a five I would certainly give them to Dr. Damaske. He is an exceptional physician.
Aug 31
I'm not sure how a diagnosis can be given based on my age only and not by medical scans and such. I had to call back in because he didn't send my script to the drug store.

Dr. Damaske gave me some good ideas about a problem I've been dealing with for a year or so. I have some renewed hope that I'll start to see some progress in my condition. He showed patience and concern even though my problem is a relatively minor one.

Best doctor I ever had.
May 19
as I've said in the last four questionnaires Dr. Demaske is very caring, I would not want to see another doctor from here on out
May 19
Dr. Damaske is wonderful, as caring and thoughtful a doctor as I have ever had. He always makes certain that I understand the medications or changes in care that I need. On the occasions when I have heard or read of different treatments, he is very patient and open to these discussions. I have already recommended him frequently, and I wish my elderly in-laws could be persuaded to see him.
May 13
I have only been with Dr. Damaske a short time and I am very comfortable and confident in the care I am receiving. It took me a long time to find a doctor who I was comfortable with. I would definitely highly recommend Dr. Damaske to others.

My history was taken by a "pre-med" student without the doctor in the room. I did not mind this as a one-time experience, but I would not want it to be the norm.
Dec 16, 2015
This was my second experience with Dr. Damaske. He is very friendly and I am very comfortable talking with him. This is one of the reasons I have asked him to be my primary care provider.
