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 iwas 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.

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 todo 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.

Yes, waiting room times can be on the high end, but Dr. Rechter is the best & well worth it--and so are the rest of his staff. I recommend booking as early as possible in the AM to cut down onthe wait. My surgery went well, and his office was always happy to continue to answer questions long past my initial healing period. Great doc!

I have put off going to the doctor for my knee injury for over a year, and he and his staff did an excellent job of making sure everything was covered in whatever was going on in there. After a shortwait filling out necessary paperwork, I was given an X-ray and we discussed further with more examinations. I am confident the treatment will make an improvement comparatively and am eager to see how my knee is in a few days once medicine kicks in. Everyone I encountered was extremely kind and knowledgeable about my issue. I am glad I found him and this office.

Dr. Rechter is amazing. He has scoped both of my knees and partially replaced one. He is conservative in his treatment though and uses surgery as a last resort. Excellent bedside manner and happy to answer any and all questions youhave.... in such a way that a non-medical background can understand! Love him!

I had broken my wrist Saturday before Christmas. Close friends recommended Dr. Rechter. I went on ZocDoc and saw that Dr. Rechter was available Monday morning and booked the appointment. He was very nice and knowledgeable. I will recommend him to others.
