Dr Rechter was very nice and helpful bit i loterqlly waited almost two hrs before i was seen and it was becuase he wasnt even at the office yet. I asked what the wait was about and the nirses said i was next which wasnt true, he just hadnt arrived yet. I would have been much happier if they had been honest and appolgized for the wait time and simply said, the doctor hasnt arrived yet and we will let you know as soon as he does.

The woman working check-in was not welcoming nor friendly. I overheard her interactions with other patients and my experience was repeated with others. I understand she is busy and handling multiple tasks simultaneously, but a smile and a friendly demeanor would go a long way.

Dr. Rechter and his staff are extremely professional and friendly. He has a great bedside manner, explains your situation clearly and fully, and tries all treatments before surgery is recommended. Would not trust any other doctor with my orthopedic needs, only Dr. Rechter.

I am an OR nurse who has worked with Dr. Rechter for over 15 years as well as being his patient. I know the integrity Dr Rechter exhibits with his patients. He is an physician/surgeon that you can trust not to do unnecessary procedures and is "extremely" knowledgeable in his field. He also is extremely talented in his ability to perform solid, safe, patient centered surgery. What I can say as a nurse who has worked with him for a long time is that he loves what he does. That goes a long way.
