Rachel is an excellent car provider. I feel that she really tries to figure out what is going on considering all aspects of my particular problem. She is extremely personable.

God Bless Rachel She prescribed a medication immediately after hearing my problems that no other doctor had recommended or prescribed & I began taking the medication that evening on the same day she prescribed it and my neuropathy pain was reduced 80% within 2 hours of taking one pill! Rachel was kind, courteous, caring and very knowledgeable as to my condition and listened to all my health issues and gave me all the answers to all my questions immediately which gave me confidence in moving forward with additional testing.

This NP had excellent bedside manners. Very professional. She gave me a much better and more detailed explanation of my MRI results than any of the physicians. Her recommendations for back exercises are paying off.

Both the doctor and nurse practitioner i seen at the clinic were amazing. They went over everything with us, and answered every question we had. I didn't feel rushed or uneasy at all.They actually care about me and my family's concerns. I have been dealing with my issues for 12 years, and have been through the same "therapy and injections" and on the 1st visit have done more for me than any doctor in the past 12 years!! Now that's what i call "excellence in care" Thank you Doctor Entezri (ortho) and Rachael Waite NP (nero) I appreciate everything you have done so far.
