Being 70 and American I have many health care providers and Rachel Waite is, by far the finest I have experienced. She was incredibly thorough in her explanation, presentation of the MRI film, and my options for treatment. Never has anyone been so complete in their presentation, description, and choices in from of me. If I was a doctor, I would steal her away from you.

I can not say enough good things about Dr. Schlenck and his staff. From December until today every one of his team has listened to me and treated me with respect and courtesy. They have taken great care in making sure I know what is going on and giving me all information I have asked for.

Racheal was not the care provider I was supposed to have the appointment with, Dr. Schlenk was. He had an emergency surgery and had tried to see me earlier that day. I did not receive the message and because he wanted to make sure I was doing well; Racheal saw me. This was not the first time she had helped me out. My regular doctor wouldn't remove my staples so Nurse Shirley did and while I was seeing her, I explained some concerns I had. Between her and Racheal, my recovery is going well. I'm so grateful to both of them.
