If I could give excellent I would. Rachel is so knowledgeable, patient, kind, and a trailblazer in the field of OIT. She never rushes you and always addresses every concern you have even if she has to make extra time. If there is an award for medical personal at The Cleveland Clinic she deserves it!

Rachel Withsel is a wonderful provider, very knowledgeable, respectful, caring and wonderful bedside manner. She always takes her time with her patients and answers all questions. We were referred to Ms. Withsel for the OIT and I'm so glad we got to work. She took wonderful care of Olivia and helped ease our fear of unknown. She's always prompt and helpful. Respectful and compassionate. Olivia absolutely love her. I'm so glad we were under her care. She is absolutely wonderful. Cleveland Clinic Foundation is very fortunate to have such wonderful provider.
