I injured my knee severely to the point where I can't walk. Rushed to see Dr. Rettig at Medstar thinking she and Medstar provide the ultimate care. She came into the room, evaluated my knee and said is take aleeve andshe left. I wad dumbfounded, I could not walk and was in excruciating pain.. she showed the least concern possible. Her smirk and smile are completely fake. Avoid at all costs if you want to get a reliable and serious doctor who actually cares.

Dr. Rettig was amazing! The office is run incredibly efficiently--I had the nurse take my vitals, a consult with a sports therapist, an X-ray, and then a very thorough visit from Dr. Rettig (who had reviewed my X-ray results), all inunder 45 minutes. I didn't feel rushed at all with Dr. Rettig--she really took the time to understand what was going on and then to explain physically what had happened and what the next steps should be. She was so fantastic, I really wish she could be my primary care doctor so that I could see her all the time.

I've been avoiding go to see a doctor about my knee injury for almost 3 months now. I'm glad I went. The Dr. and her support staff were knowledgeable, gentle, realistic, and understanding. Very professional, great bedside manner, and armed withproductive suggestions and an action plan. The offices were very clean and the wait time was incredibly short. I am overall very pleased!

After arriving early at the Lafayette location, I needed to wait an additional 30 minutes to see the doctor. I thought the staff working at the clinic could have been more professional. At one point, a staff member walked into thewaiting room and yelled loudly to get everyone's attention (even though the room wasn't overly crowded) that one of their doctors was late from surgery and the patients waiting would need to "chill out for a while" if they wanted to stay and see that doctor. After making the announcement, I overheard one of the front desk personnel say, "there's only one patient waiting to see that doctor." Eventually, I got to see Dr. Rettig who was very professional and did an okay job. Within 10 minutes she diagnosed my problem, told me about the medicine she'd prescribe and then left to go write the prescriptions, but she never returned to the room. She did not stick around to discuss treatment, follow-up appointments, etc. She said she'd write a prescription for physical therapy, but I still haven't received that. As soon I got back to work, called the doctor's office to follow-up on my questions. I left a voicemail after being placed on-hold for an hour. It's been two days and I'm still in a lot of pain and have not heard back from Dr. Rettig, because she's working at a different location the rest of the week.

Probably the best hospital visit I've ever had. Granted...I'm 31 and haven't seen a doctor since I needed a physical for high school sports (only twice thereafter); they saw me almost immediately as I filled out my forms online thru ZocDoc.This visit made me think twice about MedStar and their business operations. I'll definitely be going back.

My appointment went very well. The front staff was courteous and Dr. Retting was very warm and knowledgeable. I went there for knee pain and I was happy to learn that she's not one who rushes into X-rays and surgery butinstead believes in the healing power of your own body.. Hopefully rehab will be all it takes. If not, I will take the next step per her advice.

Very nice facility. Great, friendly staff. I like that they had everything in-house (x-ray, MRI). Dr Rettig was very friendly and she did a thorough examination. I was pleased with my diagnosis.She didn't want to send me for additional tests, which is great. I highly recommend this practice.
