My only comment is that the doctor did not remember some of my issues with my problem.

I would highly recommend Dr. Rackley. He has always showed me respect and my feelings above all. He has explained treatment for me and I agree to that. I just don't know why he was so late getting to my room. It would have been nice to been informed about what was going on. You always think the worse before the better.

I have already recommended Dr Rackely to a friend. He was kind and humerus and of course very knowledgeable about my problem. He took time patiently to answer my queries with quite politeness.

I was very confused about my condition. I expected more information given to me. Wh I got home and tried to fill my antibiotics the pharmacist said it was being pulled by the FDA. I just felt my Dr. should have taken more time to consider my personal reaction to the risks of the drug .

Used all medical terminology. When I asked for further explanation, he used different medical terms to describe himself. Left the appointment very confused and actually upset with how poorly the doctor was able to explain his procedures- and I've been to other doctors for this condition for the past several years. I didn't feel like privacy was considered. A female nurse came in and had me disrobe, which was fine. She pulled the curtain to try to protect privacy. The doctor was trying to have a conversation with me and give me my prescriptions as I lay on the table half naked, with nothing to cover me. That made me feel very uncomfortable. Overall, not impressed.

I could not have asked for a better doctor than Dr. Rackley. His level of care and concern is always excellence. I appreciate and look forward to my visits with him because of his courtesy and the time he takes to listen to my concerns and answering any and all my questions, as well as explaining the procedure even though it is always the same, but he does anyways. I truly feel lucky to have him.
